SnippetsLab is an easy-to-use snippets manager. It helps you to collect and organize valuable code snippets and makes sure that you have easy access to them whenever you want.

Features

• Beautiful user interface with both light and dark themes
• Syntax highlighting for over 350 languages
• Markdown snippets (edit & preview)
• Create nested folders, Smart Groups, and shortcuts
• Add notes & tags to a snippet
• Include multiple fragments in a single snippet (useful when one snippet logically consists of multiple separate "parts," such as a header and an implementation, or different solutions to one problem; every fragment under one snippet can have its own language and note)
• Multiple windows & pin individual window at the top of the screen
• Use advanced search (search by folder/tags/languages) to find your snippets instantly
• Use iCloud to synchronize your database ​across multiple devices
• Export the library to JSON, XML or plain text files
• Use the SnippetsLab Assistant to search, browse and create snippets right from the menu bar
• Automatic backups to ensure data safety
• Support for printing, sharing, OS X Services, Force Touch, etc.

• Data Sync: Customize the library location to use 3rd-party file-based sync services (such as Dropbox or Google Drive).
• CodeBox: Import from CodeBox Library (.cbxml) files
• Gist: Import from GitHub Gist & publish your snippets as gists. SnippetsLab supports both GitHub.com and GitHub Enterprise accounts (Note: Two-way sync is not supported.)
• Alfred Custom Search: Start searching from Alfred using the “snippetslab://search/{query}” URL scheme

Another version that crashes on iCloud Sync - no fix in sight

Nice idea and all, but unfortunately there is no effective way to synchronize snippets between machines. Just touching the iCloud tabs in Preferences will send the app into an infinite spin as has been the case over several versions now. So unless you want to start to manually create a document with another app where you keep all your snippets and then manually transfer those back into this app on each machine, you're fresh out of options. And that of course completely defeats the purpose of this app. If you only run one computer though this may not be of concern.
Otherwise best look elsewhere.

BTW: Can't verify the author's claim of "Mac App Store BEST". Seems he only added that headline as a shameless marketing gimmick. Well - I fell for it, so at least someone is making money.

Love the Alfred Workflow

I have really enjoyed using this application. The developer has been very quick to respond to suggestions and feedback. One such thing was adding a keyboard to Copy the currently selected snippet into your paste buffer. The next one that has really improved my productivity is the Alfred Workflow that can be optionally installed.

iCloud sync works fine. Nice tool.

Another reveiwer said iCloud sync doesn’t work, but I decided to try the app out anyways. iCloud sync seems to be working fine. I chose this app over Dash because Dash seems too focused on documenation and not focused enough on basic editing of snippets. Text expansion would be a nice feature, but for me it’s not a big deal.
