Sniptaculous

The most sniptacular C# snippet library for Visual Studio.

Sniptaculous is a library of Visual Studio C# snippets which are meant to complement Visual Studio's own snippets.

Installation

The snippets are distributed as a zip file, Sniptaculous, which needs to be placed somewhere on your computer. In Visual Studio open the snippets manager (Ctrl-K, Ctrl-B) and Add the folder where Sniptaculous is stored. To update the snippets simply do a file copy.

Usage

Once the snippets are installed the will appear in Visual Studio. To use them type the snippet (which will appear in Intellisense) and the press tab twice.

Just like the Visual Studio's snippets, certain snippets are parameterized. In this case the parameters will be highlighted. You can replace parameters by typing on a selected parameter and switch between parameters with tab. When all the parameters have been entered press enter.

If a snippet requires a dll or a using statement it will import itself automatically when the snippet is expended.
