simply doesn’t function as stated. It doesn’t actually even save files and throws 404 errors as stated back in November by the users.

Disappointed I’m afraid… =(

Simply fantastic. Allows you to easily add the snippets and global variable that you add to every site in one simple step.

Excellent add-on as you can now edit both snippets and globals in your text-editor of choice, or quickly import a set of defaults on a new install. Filling a major gap in EE2, if you ask me.

Another add-on providing functionality that should be part of the system. Nice implementation as an accessory. Hippo has me hooked.
