Snipplr was designed to solve a simple problem. I had too many random bits of code and HTML scattered all over my computer. I’d hunt and dig around for five minutes looking for the couple lines of code I wrote four projects ago just so I wouldn’t have to retype them. I’m lazy. I needed a way to keep all my stuff organized. Snipplr was my solution. Now, all of my code snippets are stored in one place. Best of all, the other guys at work have access to my code library and vice versa.
With Snipplr you can keep all of your frequently used code snippets in one place that’s accessible from any computer. You can share your code with other visitors and use what they post, too.
Did I mention that Snipplr works with TextMate? Yeah, it rocks.

In September 2006, Snipplr was sold to Sitening. In 2010, Sitening sold Snipplr to some French dude on auction. A few months later, it was sold again to Envato. Since then, I’ve lost track of who owns the site.
