Web Snippets in SnipAway

In this Blog we will introduce Web Snippets, an awesome feature of SnipAway. As of Version 1.1.8 there are 2 types of snippet in SnipAway. The first one is the normal code snippet you already are familiar with. The second one is called Web Snippet. This special snippet type is structured the same way as a normal code snippet. But there is one difference, instead of showing you the code of the snippet it loads a website or URL. The way you create a Web Snippet is very easy. First of you create a snippet as you would do normally, then you click on the web snippet button in the snippet action bar. Then you will need to enter a URL. This URL will be used to load the Web Snippet Content. Easy right?

Here is a quick example on how to create a Web Snippet:
