Very useful, thank you! Speeds up and eases snippet creation greatly.

Very nice, does exactly what I need, creating necessary snippets on the fly. Using VS 2012.

I download this file and then install it. After that I close my VSCode and then restart it but Snippet isn't working and then I again try to download it but it says it already installed on your system.
Take a look on it.

Installed twice on 2015 community.

can't see the code snippet file template.

Email code-snippet tries to open outlook.

file -> new -> file doesn't show code snippet either.

Export snippet goes to the file menu.

so, doesn't work for me. at all.

There is a problem.

in VS 2013 when i exported as snippet this code :
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function () {
$('#fakulteleriGetir').click(function () {
type: "POST",
url: "ListeleJson",
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
dataType: "json",
success: function (msg) {
return false;

it seen normal but when i pressed tab, code is missing.
<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
('#fakulteleriGetir').click(function () {

Sorry for the inconvenience, this is now fixed in 1.6.2.

by CharlieEC | June 12 2015

Have to say very disappointed. Practically none of the functionality promised seems to work.
VS2010 Sp1. Windows 7
Other packages: Code rush, NuGet package manager

Hi, i've installed version 1.6.1 on my VS2012 Ultimate ver 11.0.61030 update 4
When I try to open "Snippet Editor" windows, I've this error message box:

Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation

When I try to open a .snippet file:
Cannot cast the underlying exported value of type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Utilities.ContentTypeRegistryImpl' to type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Utilities.IContentTypeRegistryService'

There was a bug in VS2012 which is now fixed in 1.6.2. Please try again.

Yes, Great tool
but stupid Microsoft have for some reason changed the Language attribute
definition [Language="SQL_SSDT"] in VS2013
Please update!


by Manolo-IO | March 27 2015

Great tool for the management of snippet.
Would it be possible to add the type "SQL_SSDT" for T-SQL editor of VS2013?

Thank You

I download the source code of the plugin, but both my vs2012 and vs2013 said that the project SnippetDesigner and SnippetDesignerComponents are not compatible. I have no idea what's wrong here. My compiler are vs2012 ultimate and vs 2013 ultimate ,not professional ones.

Did you install the vs2012 sdk?

by gmereckis | January 02 2015

Awesome tool, thank you! Makes creation and editing of snippets a breeze.

vs2013 update 3 cant run?

by Michael A. Duncan | October 20 2014

Terribly buggy. Won't save on close window! Won't save if Properties window has focus! Won't open designer by default when double-clicking file.

Typing $$ then "abc" ends up creating 3 replacements!

Creating new snippet and attempting to open results in "The operation could not be completed"
