SnippetsLab 2.0 MAS macOS

SnippetsLab is an easy-to-use snippets management tool. It helps you to collect and organize valuable code snippets, and makes sure that you have easy access to them whenever you want.


  • Beautiful user interface with both light and dark themes
  • Syntax highlighting for over 350 languages
  • Markdown snippets (edit & preview)
  • Create nested folders, Smart Groups, and shortcuts
  • Add notes & tags to a snippet
  • Include multiple fragments in a single snippet (useful when one snippet logically consists of multiple separate “parts,” such as a header and an implementation, or different solutions to one problem; every fragment under one snippet can have its own language and note)
  • Multiple windows & pin individual window at the top of the screen
  • Use advanced search (search by folder/tags/languages) to find your snippets instantly
  • Use iCloud to synchronize your database across multiple devices
  • Export the library to JSON, XML or plain text files
  • Use the SnippetsLab Assistant to search, browse and create snippets right from the menu bar
  • Automatic backups to ensure data safety
  • Support for printing, sharing, macOS Services, Force Touch, etc.


  • Data Sync: Customize the library location to use 3rd-party file-based sync services (such as Dropbox or Google Drive).
  • CodeBox: Import from CodeBox Library (.cbxml) files
  • Gist: Import from GitHub Gist & publish your snippets as gists. SnippetsLab supports both and GitHub Enterprise accounts (Note: Two-way sync is not supported.)
  • Alfred Custom Search: Start searching from Alfred using the “snippetslab://search/{query}” URL scheme
  • Alfred Workflow: Search and view the results directly in Alfred, open them in SnippetsLab, copy to clipboard or paste to the frontmost app (Note: Alfred Powerpack required)

What’s New:

Version 2.0
SnippetsLab 2.0 brings more than 20 new features and numerous other improvements and bug fixes.

  • Added arm64 support for Apple Silicon Macs.
  • Added the ability to customize themes, as well as an option to automatically switch between a light and a dark theme of your choice.
  • Refined and polished all preinstalled app and markdown themes.
  • The sidebar is now unified with folders and tags showing in the same workspace.
  • Added the ability to add tags to the favorites section.
  • You can now search the sidebar using a new filter bar on the bottom.
  • Snippets imported from GitHub now display a special gist icon in the snippets list.
  • The history menu has been moved to the main menu area, allowing for quick navigation to previously viewed snippets.
  • Added an option to highlight the current line in the code editor.
  • Added the ability to resize the menubar assistant. You can also choose from three scales for the quick look window.
  • You can now detach the quick look pop-over by dragging it to its own window.
  • Added more navigational shortcuts for SnippetsLab Assistant. You can use Command-1~9 keys to quickly switch between the fragments (up to first 9 fragments), use Command-Up/Down arrow keys to jump to the top or bottom, and Option-Up/Down arrow keys to scroll the page up and down.
  • The above arrow-related shortcuts work for the search filter menu as well (you open it by typing “in:” in the search bar).
  • Compact mode now also applies to the menubar assistant.
  • More markdown format options have been added. You can now insert a footnote or thematic break, and toggle subscript/superscript/tasklist from the Format menu.

Bug fixes and miscellaneous improvements

  • Improved syntax highlighting for Swift, Objective-C, CSS, and Python code. More keywords for the latest Cocoa technologies has been added, including SwiftUI.
  • The swipe gesture on the snippets list will now copy the snippet, instead of deleting it.
  • The ability to record a single-key shortcut has been added.
  • When searching for a language in the Preference window, the most relevant results will now appear first (searching for languages like C and R are now much easier, as they should be).
  • Fixed an issue where the assistant search filter menu may show on the wrong screen.
  • Texts pasted into the search bar will no longer appear black when using a dark theme.
  • Content size of the markdown preview panel now scales with the main editor font size.
  • Fixed an issue where the show invisibles option may cause the text editor to misbehave when an unsupported font is used.
  • Fixed an issue that may prevent iCloud sync updates from being reflected while the app is running.
  • Fixed a bug where the search filter menu may show an incorrect number of snippets for the menu items.
  • The Alfred workflow search function now has improved response time.
  • Other performance and reliability improvements.
