Snippet Manager – A developers best friend

Filed under: Software — Tags: , , — Ole Aass @ 11:07 pm

I’ve been searching for the ultimate snippet manager, but of course that does not exist. Some managers has an online database where you can store your snippets and grab them from anywhere, but they don’t have good syntax highlighting. Others has great syntax highlighting for several often used languages like, C++, PHP, JavaScript, etc, but no shared snippet database meaning it’s on your computer localy and nowhere else.

Well, after a long search and testing alot of snippet managers I’ve settled with a manager called “Snippet Manager”. The reason why I’ve settled with this is because it’s as close to perfect as you can come. At least for a free software. It’s extremely light weight and the syntax highlighting is perfect. It does NOT have an online database where you can store your snippets, but since it’s portable I placed it to a thumbdrive that I can easly bring with me anywhere I go. No installation needed and my snippets are with me at any time.
