Snippety improves productivity by providing quick access to your snippets. Create templates from often-used sentences, code fragments, mail templates, test data, or anything you like.

Snippety works flawlessly with every text field! Just press ⌘⇧Space, find your snippet, and hit ↩. You can also define your keywords and paste snippets by typing without opening the app!

You can tell Snippety what to do and it will follow your instructions to generate templates or insert placeholders automatically.

Create smart snippets using AI Assistant and describe what they should do for you. You will quickly realize how powerful this feature is. Ask the snippet to fix typos for you, summarize, translate, or even reply to an email. Soon you won’t be able to live without your personalized collection of smart snippets.

Snippety can also simulate keys which can help you to fill forms faster. You can even simulate app-specific shortcuts to automate repetitive tasks.

Advanced users can improve snippets by using scripts to automate everyday operations on text. Take advantage of limitless possibilities and integrate Snippety even with translation services or weather forecasts!

Live Templates

AI Assistant

Snippety is integrated with OpenAI API (ChatGPT) and Ollama, which allows you to load local models like the latest Meta Llama 3. The application provides AI template generation and smart placeholders that can do (with the given text) whatever you tell them.

Your snippets can now translate, transform, fix typos, summarize text, or even reply to emails.
