How to use Snippets in Notepad++

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

A friend recently suggested that I add the Snippets plug in to my Notepad++. I was able to install it easy enough, but now am not sure what to do with it. How does it work? Will this give me more available characters?

Thanks for any help.

Snippets is an add-in for Notepad++ which can be used special codes into your file on which you are working.

For example snippets includes for World Wide Web Consortium, Doctypes, including, HTML Strict, XHTML Transitional, CSS tags etc.

Once snippet is installed , for example in case of HTML snippet, you do not have to manually insert tags live <a><ul> etc.

You can Just enable it from Plugins –> Snippets menu to quickly add code snippets in your HTML document.

You can enable snippets from Notepad++ plugin manager and if you want to insert snippet into your working document, just put insert cursor where you want to insert snippet, choose the snippet category and then snippet from category list to insert it.

How to use Snippets in Notepad++


Snippets or the NppSnippets is a plug-in for the Notepad++ source code editor program. It gives you the ability to add or insert code snippets to your current document by selecting it from the list of available snippets. Usually, you can install it from Notepad++’s Plugin Manager and that’s the easiest way. Unfortunately, the current version of Notepad++ has a problem installing the plug-in from the Plugin Manager.

If you are using Notepad++ and you want to try it, go to NppSnippets Plug-in for Notepad++ and download it. Here, you need to install it manually after downloading the ZIP file. Once you download it, unpack it and open the PDF file and check how you can install it manually. There is a guide in the PDF file describing how the manual installation is done.

After installing NppSnippets, you have to restart Notepad++ so the plug-in can be detected and loaded to the program. Simply close Notepad++ and then open it back again. If the installation is successful, you should see Snippets on the right side of Notepad++ in a separate pane.

Using Snippets to insert code snippets to your document is easy. If you are constructing an HTML page, select HTML Tags from Snippets’ dropdown list and double-click on a snippet to insert it on your document. Inserting a snippet to your document is like inserting the entire HTML tag complete with the opening and closing tag.
