thanks to all of you who did send me bug reports and suggestions for the SnippetManager add-on in the past.
Now SnippetManager is going to evolve from an add-on to a stand-alone application.
In fact, due to some restrictions in the PowerGUI SDK, it always has been, more or less. The add-on is merely an icon and a launcher for the actual SnippetManager, with which you always could edit any snippet file. But until now, it has been specially customized to work smoothly with PowerGUI.
This will not change.
But, i would like to broaden its usefulness and e.g. support other editors. But, more about that later… :)
I also would like to build in a few new features. I have some in mind, but i would like to hear:
- if you have something that you would like to see in v2 or
- if there is something that is bugging you in the current version
If the answer is yes, please send me an email with the subject “SnippetManager Suggestion” to:
You could also post a comment here, but i prefer mails, because they do make follow-ups easier.
Thanks and have a nice day,
It took me a bit longer than expected, but here is the new version of Snippet Manager: over 4000 lines of Powershell code and lots of new features, improvements and bug fixes!
I’m quite happy about this, because although i had a good feeling ;) there were quite a few great entries like WMISpy and DemoPowerShell from James Brundage or the Help Browser from Gyorgy Nemesmagasi. The price for the best powerpack went to Adam Murray for his great HP Virtual Connect Management Pack. (Read about all winning entries over at Kirks blog.)
I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Kirk for his expertise and his help with a few ugly bugs during the development of my add-ons. Thanks!

I made a video tutorial for the SnippetManager especially for beginners, which focuses on creating new snippets and how to use placeholders.
(!) Its about version 0.9 and it still covers all the basic functions, but you may also want to read the help file to find out about all the improvements and new features in the latest version.

What it is
With the SnippetManager add-on you can manage your code snippets. You can easily create new snippets, edit existing ones, create new categories and much more.
