Snippety improves productivity by providing quick access to your snippets. Create templates from often-used sentences, code fragments, mail templates, test data, or anything you like.

Snippety works flawlessly with every text field! Just press ⌘⇧Space, find your snippet, and hit ↩. You can also define your keywords and paste snippets by just typing without even opening the app!

Snippety can also simulate keys which is very useful to autofill forms. You can even simulate app-specific shortcuts to automate repetitive tasks.

Advanced users can improve snippets by using scripts to automate everyday operations on text. Take advantage of limitless possibilities and integrate Snippety even with translation services or weather forecasts!

Key Features:
• Similar behavior to Spotlight. By just pressing ⌘⇧Space you can access your snippets from any place.
• Create templates using customizable placeholders. Snippety supports an auto-incrementing number, calculated date, clipboard content, clipboard history, command-line script, file content, random value, selectable date, selectable value, selected text, text transformation, and text variable.
• Live Templates enable you to fill in placeholders while seeing the final result.
• Insert snippets in any text field by just typing previously defined keywords. Your snippet will be pasted without even opening the app.
• Syntax highlighting supporting 50+ languages.
• Rich Text (RTF) support.
• Markdown preview (macOS 12+).
• Advanced scripting. Use command-line placeholders to transform selected text or clipboard content using bash scripts.
• Simulate app-specific shortcuts or key combinations directly in snippets. Use it to auto-fill forms or even automate some repetitive tasks. Anything you can do using a keyboard can be simulated in your snippet.
• Adjust Snippety to your needs using many configurable options.
• Use the Quick Access Menu to show the context menu with your favorite snippets.
• Dedicated iOS app to access snippets from your mobile phone or tablet.

Change of Opinion

Initially, I was super annoyed with the app (well any app that does it) for bugging me to write a review...

I like to spend some time using an app, on my own time, to see how it fits into my workflow, before I leave a review.. Well I spent some time, so I'm updating the review..

The app has become one of the must have tools in my daily workflow. I don't really use it how most folks would, but it is still super helpful.

I use it alot for keeping templates in for when I'm entering data into company Bug Tracker (JIRA.) It helps to keep each entry tidy and following the same outline so its easy to find the information I need.

I spent a while looking for an app, that would not only do text expanding, but also let me input custom text as needed because the expanded text is not always the same. Especially when your filling out bug tickets.

I could accomplish this in Alfred as well, but I wanted an stand-alone app, to keep my work related expansions seperate, and to make it a bit easier to set new ones up, as Alfred can be a bit time consuming sometimes.

As for the developer, he actually takes suggestions on what might help inprove the overall experience with the app. Two of mine made it into this last release, and they are a big help in speeding up my workflow.

I am thrilled to have come across this great App!
Due to privacy concerns I had to stop using another app that offered similar features becuase the other developer started running things through their servers which introduced a security / privacy risk.
When I found Snippety, it was good and met the basic needs, but a little rough around the edges. I sent some initial feedback & to my great surprise and delight not only got a positive reponse to the Feedback, but the Developer integrated the feature request in a future release! He actually made several updates and now I love this App! I have shared it with my team and a number of other colleages! Keep up the great work and I hope you have a lot of success.

Snippety is the ideal text expander app for my needs

The Snippety App has enabled me to work much more efficiently on my Mac. I was initially hesitant to get Snippety as it doesn't have a demo. After testing it, the features, UI and time I saved prompts me to rate it an easy 5 stars.

It is a text expander which most importantly for me supports dynamic variables which have been a significant time saver for me, especially when it comes to drafting emails, creating documents or even prompts for ChatGPT. Though I use it mainly for text, it also supports rich text, HTML, and even JavaScript.

One standout feature is the app's intuitive user interface. Of all the text expander apps I tested, it was the one which integrated best with my Mac O/S, allowing for smooth operations across various applications.

The process of creating, managing and recalling snippets is seamless, and there's an integrated search function to easily locate your saved snippets.

It also offers iCloud sync, which let me replicate my snippets seamlessly across my Mac devices.

Highly recommend anyone looking for a robust text expander to give it a try.
