Is there a well-supported, 2.7.x+ compatible add-on to save Snippets as files like what we can do to templates in Expression Engine?

I think there are a lot of options out there but I just want something that is well supported and stable.

My choose is Bjorn SnippetsSync - simple and stable

  • +1 from me. Not quite a sync as template files work as EE still gets the data from the DB. But SnippetsSync does auto sync that part. Has worked well for me. Commented Jan 23, 2014 at 13:08

  • I tried using this but I get some weird things on snippets where I am using CE-Image. What is the parse order of this add-on? Commented Jan 24, 2014 at 1:35

    @Nick Benson SnippetsSync and Snippet Sync are different addon-ons. The latter is the one that is not free. Commented Jan 24, 2014 at 1:36

    @arvinsim, Ah, indeed, too closely named. In that case, I must update my comment; Snippet Sync would be my vote. Commented Jan 24, 2014 at 20:25

I personally prefer Low Variables as it does so much more than just let you edit as files. You can control the parse order allowing you to create global variables or snippets. Plus it works with a whole bunch of field types making it extremely useful for content that clients need to edit but don't deserve a channel. And yes you can hide variables/snippets from clients so your client only sees what they need to.
