Snipps is a application for manage code snippets. The main idea is to have a fast and mouse independent application based on keyboard shortcuts. Snippets are filtered by name and optionally with criteria: language and/or tags. The application run in background and could be closed from taskbar or by press ALT+F4 when main window is focused.

  • ESC - hide main window/cancel edit and navigate to previous view
  • TAB - focus next control
  • SHIFT+TAB - focus previous control

  • CTRL+N/down arrow - select next snippet/tag
  • CTRL+P/up arrow - select previous snippet/tag
  • CTRL+G - select first item in completion list
  • CTRL+SHIFT+G - select last item in completion list
  • CTRL+I - show preview of snippet content
  • CTRL+D - delete selected item(snippet or tag)
  • CTRL+S - save edited item(snippet or tag) and navigate to previous view
