I used the Snippetizer to make a snippet with ease.
But then it killed my Peek functionality in VS2013. It prevented me from dismissing the Peek window by pressing Esc. So, I removed it. Sorry Snippetizer.

Nearly perfect!
Editing a Snippet in raw XML is a torture. This Extension makes it easy to create custom snippets and edit existing ones with all needed properties.
The only weird thing is, that the commands in the Edit menu are not disabled if they unavailable.

I've made snippets in the past, but hand making the xml and remembering the tags/structure has always been friction. I just easily made two new ones. I feel a new library of custom snippets coming on!

Still no support for CSHTML files?

Include in the next update of VS, please!!! :)
Very useful!!
I´m a Technical Educator for Windows Internals and C++ (always using VC++),
and I have to create groups of blocks of code to my samples and this kind of
tool helps a lot.

I really love this little add in. I never really used snippets before and now I have so many places I realized I could've been using it! I can't wait to build a whole library! 5 stars from me!

Does not work in CSHTML designer.

If it doesn't support HTML/JavaScript/CSS3 then it is useless to me.

Missing feature to create snippets in HTML/CSHTML files, also in the CSS/LESS files would be awsome.

It seems interesting with basic features and the way you edit is really nice, however the Snippet Designer seems to work better for me.
I got invalid snippet file when I tried to edit an existing snippet. I had to reedit it in Snippet Designer to get it back working.

I think with a little more work it could be a good alternative.

The creation of snippets is great, however the using them could be improved. Would be much better if you could give the snippet could appear in intellisense (similar to resharper). However this would need to be scoped to the relavent files. Also, this seems to only work with C#. e.g. I cannot create a snippet for HTML.

This is awesome!!

Great extension to simplify snippet creation. Editing is similar to Visual Studio 2013s new "Peek Definition", with context options under the peek area. The design is good. It does have a couple of bugs but it's easy enough to clean up the created snippet in a text editor if needbe.

Before even trying its functionality, I noticed with it enabled it was capturing the escape key that I would use to close the Peek Window.

Die Bedienung ist ein bisschen gewöhnungsbedürftig aber unterm Strich eine sehr gute und vor allem nützliche Erweiterung!

    • I'm guessing there isn't much of a difference between 2013 and 2015 in the way of extension development. When do you intend to make this extension available for it as well?
  • PHP files

    • Hello,
      Great extension! We'd love to support it in PHP Tools for Visual Studio. What should we do? Would it be possible to contact us with the creator ? Our email
      Thanks so much!

    • I can get the snippets to save okay, but once I edit one and save it, I can no longer EDIT that file because it has changed the language element from "BASIC" to "VB", which causes an error on loading for EDIT.  I can still INSERT the snippet though.

    • as in subject, unable to use Esc key from Peek window
    • Seconded. When using Peek to look at a file in the project, Esc doesn't work to close the Peek window. If the file is not in the project, e.g. generated from metadata, it closes just fine.
  • "Snippet Definition", "Create Snippet", "Edit Snippet" does not work
    1 Posts | Last post January 27, 2014
    • Clicking on "Snipping Definition" does not bring up a view. "Create Snippet" and "Edit Snippet" does not work either.
      Any ideas?
      Cheers Harry

    • Saved. Successfully downloaded. While running it after download, the installation failed.
      Currently, I am using VS Express 2013 with windows & blend.
    • @Aswini, Express doesn't support extensions
    • @Ala Shiban, Express does support extensions but is limited to extensions that are written by Microsoft and approved by Microsoft for use in an Express edition.
      For instance, I am able to install NuGet Package Manager extension and Visual Studio Extensions for Windows Library for Javascript extension into my copy of Visual Studio 2012.
  • action bar follow editor window

    • If snippet code is long, Let action bar follow editor windows [up | down] ^^
  • Can't create snippets for css files
    3 Posts | Last post December 05, 2013
    • Seems that the extension only works on code files but not in CSS or razor files. Any workaround?
      BTW: I already tried by creating the snippet manually and adding it to my code snippets under the CSS directory but still are not showing when I try to use them.
      Thanks - Javier
    • Hey Javier, we'll look into it - I'll keep you posted
    • Hey Javier, can you try this out on the new version? We just posted an update
