Add-On Type(s)



SnippetsSync is a very basic extension that lets you save your global variables and snippets as files, keeping them in-sync during development and enabling you to use version control on the files.

Please note: syncing only goes from files to database, so you will need to create files for any pre-existing snippets.

Hooks Used

If the add-on is an extension, and ties into ExpressionEngine's core files, it will use ExpressionEngine hooks. We are listing any hooks the add-on uses for developers to have an easier time locating other add-ons that they can reference for their own work.

Another argument that this should be built in to EE like standard templates but… this is a great Addon for your workflow. Keep snippets as external files.

Aces - perfect if you’re developing locally (as you should be :)

Delightful little plugin that saves a TON of time! Super simple to install and not sure why you wouldn’t want to use this!

Great plugin but BE CAREFUL ADDING IT TO AN EXISTING SITE! You have to create your files manually, and the second you do, your snippet in the database will be overwritten by your blank file!

Just what I’ve been dreaming about!  Will be using this from now on. So simple and saves so much time!

This was simple and worked the first time. I can now edit snippets and global variables in CODA with the rest of my template files. Bjorn is the man!

This plugin saves a lot of time if you work with templates as files. I like to use Dreamweaver to work with my templates, and it got to be a hassle switching between that (for templates) and the EE backend (for snippets and global vars). A real time saver and dead simple to use.

This is simple and it works.

1. It isn’t sync as much as it is “read from file into snippet”, but that’s what I needed.

2. Snippet files can’t have extensions; this may inhibit double-click to open.

3. Install is 2 folders; I wish it were 1.

Nice job!
