Meet Snipper - a native snippets manager, built with Swift4 for MacOS exclusively, aiming to be a single tool for saving your day to day working notes, snippets of code, and just a good helper in the developer's life. *** Main Features *** * editor with the syntax highlighting * multiple programming languages are supported * different storage types * light and dark themes are included *** Storages *** Snipper designed in a way to support multiple storages, and the supported storage types will be extended in the next versions. The v1 provides two storage types: * Local storage * iCloud storage Local storage is designed to store your snippets only locally. With the iCloud storage, your snippets will be stored in the cloud by your Apple ID, and it allows to sync the user's data between multiple apps on the different computers. It's really handy when you want to share your snippets on the working machine, and your personal in the same time. iCloud storage uses a private database. Only the user can access this data through a device authenticated with their iCloud account. Snipper is designed and implemented as offline first application, so the iCloud storage doesn't require a constant internet connection when your work with it. *** Editor *** The editor is built in a way to fit developer needs. It supports features as: * Showing of invisible characters * Showing of line numbers * Tab size customization * Insertion of spaces instead of tabs * Font customization Any feedback is highly appreciated : )

@ateologov Is there any major difference between SnippetsLab and Snipper?

@ozgrozer Thanks for the question. Obviously, technically it's completely different, as well as the user experience. From the technical standpoint, Snipper is built with Swift 4, and CloudKit for the iCloud sync. I see my app as a bit enhanced version of the previous generation of snippet managers, taking in mind more tight connection to the cloud, and integration with other cloud services is the part of my vision. Stay tuned for the upcoming versions ; )

@ateologov I've been using SnippetsLab for last 2 years. There is no problem about UI/UX and performance but I think the developer stopped to maintain it, last update was 5 months ago. I'd like to try Snipper but since it's not free maybe I should wait for awhile. There's a global keyboard shortcut in SnippetsLab to show the main window in any app. It makes everything better. I think Snipper doesn't have?

@ozgrozer I see. No, but I'll add this feature, thanks : ) There will be a separate release outside the App Store, with the free one week trial. I am working on it at the moment. Also, I've created the Github Organization and a public repo for tracking the progress of the new features: https://github.com/SnipperApp/Sn... feel free to subscribe.

I'm a user of SnippetsLab. With this app there is the option to export your snippets. Importing them into your Snipper app would be usefull. Maybe something for the next update?

@oudedibbes Really cool idea! I was thinking about the implementation of importing files from the folders too. So this feature is definitely with a high priority now. Thanks!
