All your code, organized

SnippetsLab provides straightforward yet powerful ways to manage all your content with unlimited nesting folders, plus tags, smart groups, and shortcuts.

Smart groups allow you to search your library with custom, nested conditions involving not only title and content, but a wide range of metadata as well.

Moreover, you can create multiple tabs within each snippet to further categorize and group all your content.

It is not only the best snippet manager, but also the best markdown note-taking app for programmers, in my opinion. Better than other popular editors since SnippetsLab features both syntax highlighting and LaTeX which is quite rare among other apps.

A great design and functionality. Coupled with the Alfred Workflow for it, it is an absolute joy to get snippets one creates quickly from the app. Really recommended app. 10/10

nikivii, United States

Simple and efficient. Very good quality. Offers many options. Nice interface. I like it very much and I use it every day to save my code snippets. It is worth the price. Keep the good work! Thanks.

Chris_tofe, United States

I’m very happy with this product, efficient, clean and beautiful, one of the best snippet tools I’ve tried. Keep the good work guys.

Many good features at an unbeatable price.

SnippetsLab is perfect for my needs. I am constantly using it when developing and it has saved me a lot of time. By simply having code that I reuse frequently in the Menubar is incredibly useful. Being able to add further code snippets via the Menubar is also very convenient.

Reviewed-It, United Kingdom

This app is amazing. I use it all the time. I can neatly store all of my snippets and use them at a moments notice!

Sk8tyger, Canada

I seeked a program for really small pieces of code and an easy way to find them when needed. This program has served this perfectly!

It’s so hard to find way to store code and snippets of scripts. This makes my programming and scripting SO MUCH EASIER!

dynamixcore, United States

I've been using this for quite a while now to keep track of various code snippets, scripts, Terminal commands, and so on. It has a great design and is well maintained with regular updates and improvements. I also appreciate that the new features that have been added over time are done in a way that doesn't clutter the interface.

robotspacer, United States

Indispensible - I appreciate the syntax coloring for a multitude of languages and the sync capabilities. I use this almost daily for storing language examples for languages I use rarely, patterns for idioms of mine that aren't quite "library-able" and samples of clever snippets that are too much to store in brain memory. Search is top notch. Thank you for this app!

E, PharmD, United States

As you dev along you compile masses of notes and bits of code, and you want to reference them quickly, access them across devices, maybe even publish them straight from the app – this does it all and I'm grateful it exists, I couldn't imagine being a developer without it.

Another Colin, United States

Great way to organize code snippets, or short notes, etc. This is the easiest app--and I've tired a lot of them--for me to surface small bits of information quickly.

tk421, United States

One of the tools you don't want to miss again once you installed it. Well maintained and a huge timesaver.

totoffkoeln, Germany

Have been using this for many months now, never had an issue with it. Fast accurate search feature. Keeps thousands of snippets and notes categorised and easy to find. I could not imagine not using it. Essential everyday tool for me.

stxt2000, Australia

It's a great time-saver having a single source of scripts, references, and links. This app excels when working with different languages in different environments across many projects. Some of the specific features useful to me: -Markdown capability allows markdown to be mixed with code blocks from different languages. -Ability to reorganize the folder structures. -Sync/back up! -Fast launch and search. -Usability. -Well maintained and frequently updated.

lm6068, United States

I love SnippetsLab and use it every day. I keep project based Snippets so that I can share them with colleagues as well as more general snippets by language. I happened to show a friend how I use it and it gave him loads of ideas as to how he can use it. Definitely 5 stars for me and now with JSON export!!

Simon, Oxford, Unifed Kingdom

I have tons of snippets, notes, howto, examples,... that have helped me through many development and platform setup tasks. This app is easy to use, beautiful, and flexible.

uuklanger, United States

This snippets App has got you covered for what you need. I use it for years now. It is mantained and amazingly easy to use.

aPinix, Portugal

My favorite app for CS note taking. Tried Ulysses, Scrivener, Evernote, Notion, Typora, gist, gitbook, and this is the best for me. Love it so much!

FrancisJin, United States

Thank you :) awesome. A six dimensional storage for snippets. Files, Tags, Folders, Languages, Fragments, and last, but not least as codeblocks in markdown.
