snipster

A simple cli snippet manager

GitHub (pre-)release PyPI Python GitHub issues license

snipster is a command line snippet manager allowing you to view, edit, create and copy snippets from your command line. It follows the Unix philosophy of "do one thing and do it well".

Installation | Setup | Usage | Troubleshooting Credits

Installation

snipster is available on PyPI. This is the easiest way to install it. All dependencies will be installed automatically.

pip3 install snipster-py

Setup

When you first start up snipster, you should run

snipster source

This will create a .snipster directory in your home folder (if it does not already exist) and create an empty snippet list.

Usage

snipster source
snipster list
snipster list [-t <tag>... | -l <language>... | -k <keyword>... ]...
snipster (-c|-e|-o) [-f] <snippet-id>
snipster -h | --help
snipster -v | --version

Listing (And Filtering) All Snippets

You can filter by tag (-t), keyword in the title (-k) and language (-l). If the filters result in only one match, the match will be displayed directly (instead of a list with only one entry).

Creating/Editing A Snippet

When you create a snippet, an empty file will be created in ~/.snipster and opened in your $EDITOR. For this snippet to be read as valid, it needs to have yaml frontmatter and the actual snippet code needs to be marked as such. You do not need to have any attributes in the front matter but they are heavily encouraged. Valid attributes are tags, lang, title. An id is not necessary. It will be automatically assigned by snipster when you source again.

In order for (changes to) a snippet to be recognized you need to snipster source after saving.
