Welcome to the Snippet Designer

The Snippet Designer is a plugin which enhances the Visual Studio IDE to allow a richer and more productive code snippet experience.

  1. What do I need to use this?
  2. What can the Snippet Designer do?
  3. How do I use the Snippet Designer?
  4. How to build the code?
  5. How can I contribute to this project?


  • Visual Studio 2010
  • Visual Studio 2008


A Snippet editor integrated inside of the IDE.

Access it by opening any .snippet file or going to File -> New -> File -> Code Snippet File
It uses the native Visual Studio code editor so that you can write the snippets in the same enviorment you write your code.
It lets you easily mark replacements by a convenient right click menu.
It displays properties of the snippet inside the Visual Studio properties window.

A Snippet Explorer tool window to search snippets on your computer.

It is located under View -> Other Windows -> Snippet Explorer
This tool window contains a code preview window which lets to peek inside the snippet to see what it is without opening the file.
Maintains an index of snippets on your computer for quick searching.
Provides a quick way to find a code snippet to use, edit or delete

A right Click "Export as Snippet" menu option added to C#, VB and XML code editor to send highlighted code directly to the Snippet Editor


This release contains several bug fixes but more importantly it now includes support for Visual Studio 2010.

I am super excited for this since now you can install the Snippet Designer from inside of Visual Studio using the new extension manager. Just open up the extension manager and search for “Snippet Designer”.

Then you just need to install it and restart Visual Studio.

Have fun
