Plugin Description

Use Snippy to quickly create your own custom shortcodes.

A Snippy shortcode is built by combining bits. A bit can be a file, like a Stylesheet or a Script, or a piece of code, like HTML, CSS or JavaScript.

The “code” bits can contain placeholders, which are automatically made accessible as shortcode attributes.

Time for a quick example.

Let’s create a shortcode to embed YouTube videos. We’ll add an HTML bit and set the it’s value to the YouTube embed iframe.

Now to make this bit a bit more flexible we will replace the YouTube video id with a placeholder value {{id}}.

<iframe src="https://youtube/embed/{{id}}"/>

Yay! We’ve finished our first bit!

Now we can create a new Snippy shortcode and add the YouTube iFrame HTML bit. After saving the shortcode we can use our new and shiny YouTube shortcode in the text editor.
