Your little expandable text snippet helper.

#This is not the repository you're looking for!

You're very likely wanting the current version of Snippet Pixie.

The repository for the released version of Snippet Pixie is on GitHub.


Please check out the above sites for the current release of Snippet Pixie, but if you're interested in its successor, Snippet Expander, keep reading.

#Project Status

This version of Snippet Expander is a rewrite from scratch of Snippet Pixie and is far from complete.

#Why a rewrite?

  • Improve the structure of the software for increased speed and utility.
  • ianmjones wants to learn the Go programming language.


As the rewrite is partly a vehicle for learning the Go programming language, this project is currently not accepting code contributions.

To follow along with its development please subscribe to my ianmjones YouTube channel and watch some Always Developing videos.

In particular, the Snippet Pixie: Next playlist might be of interest.

If you spot something that you think could be improved, please comment on the YouTube video, or post to the mailing list.
