Snippets are a great way to save code that you use on a regular basis, like loops, often used queries or checks in production systems.

To create a snippet, right click in the editor and choose Add code to Snippets to create a Snippet with the complete code or Add selected code to Snippets to create a Snippet with the selected code only.

You can open the Snippets overview by clicking on the bookmark icon in the navigation, the menu bar or by using the shortcut Cmd + B on Mac or Ctrl + B on Windows/Linux. Cycle through the snippets using the arrow keys up and down or search all of the snippets for a specific piece of code. If you've found what you need, hit Enter to take over the snippet code into the active Tinkerwell tab. If you want to open up a new tab with the code, use Ctrl/Cmd + Enter. You can give every snippet a custom label for a better overview.

If you want to create a snippet from a history entry, click the »Create snippet« button in the history modal.

Shared Snippets

You can add snippets to a Custom Tinkerwell Driver and store them in a project. So if you want to share snippets with other developers, the easiest way is to create a custom driver for a project and add the snippet via the context menu method. Tinkerwell loads these snippets when you connect to the project and makes them easily available – if you're wondering: You can't delete these snippets within the app and have to change or delete them via the custom driver.
