[ANN] snippits 0.5.1 Released - Ruby text expansion on Linux

Snippits version 0.5.1 has been released!

This is Ruby program that will type text for you. Â It uses ‘snippits’,
text files with a simple syntax to determine what to type. Â However,
can be very powerful, since they can contain embedded Ruby, special keys
(Control, Shift, Up, etc), and can contain a cursor placement


  • eRB
    Â Â Â Â ‘sudo gem install erb’
  • xte from the xautomation suite
    Â Â Â Â ‘sudo apt-get install xautomation’ on Debian/Ubuntu-like
  • ASpell and RASpell is not required, but adds extra features:
    Â Â Â Â ‘sudo apt-get install aspell-en’ and
    Â Â Â Â ‘sudo gem install raspell’


  • sudo gem install snippits

If you have any questions, please let me know!
