Snippets Distributors

What's this?

Distributors are plugins for Snippets that allow you to reuse code snippets from your library in code editor natively. They combine advantages of standalone code snippets manager with advantages of built-in editor's functionality. At first glance, it may be hard to understand what it is and how it works, but in reality it is very simple, and once you try it, you will love it.

How to install and use?

All available distributors are bundled with Snippets 0.7 (Download) and all you need to do is to update Snippets. We created a directory of distributors where you can find more info about any particular distributor.

To start using distributors, open Distributors window (on Mac press Cmd+Shift+D or from menu Windows->Distributors and on Windows Ctrl+Shift+D or from menu Tools->Distributors), select a distributor in the list and select Enabled checkbox. That's it. By default it will distribute all snippets which have Tab Trigger defined. Additionally, you can configure filter to match snippets that will be available in the editor.
