Chrome/Chromium extension that allows easy CSS+HTML extraction of specific DOM element. Created snippet can be then exported to CodePen, jsFiddle or JS Bin with one click.

Other features:

  • cleans up HTML (removing unnecessary attributes, fixing indentation)
  • optimizes CSS to make it readable
  • fully configurable (all filters can be turned off)
  • nice UI thanks to Bootstrap & Flat-UI projects
  • works with :before and :after pseudo elements



Download the extension and manually load it as an 'Unpacked extension' via the extensions page.


Open Developer Tools, you should see the new SnappySnippet tab. Inspect an element on the page and switch to the new tab, you will see options for settings and exporting the code for the element you selected.

For more details, see this demonstration video.
