    Hi urnadom,

    you can install this plugin into gedit plugins system folder. It depends on the linux distribution, i.e. in ubuntu dist this folder is /usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins

    I am using this plugin. But it still lacks features. Currently its most usage is to post to snipplr. The search is too limitted. I want to comment snippets and search my comments. And I want to search title, comment, tag or even source. Plus, I want to search others’ snippets.

    Something more.

    I’ve taken a look at Snipplr’s API, finding that search the source is imposible. And you can only search your snippets and your favourite ones.

    And I’ve find out that search by title does work. So I think you should change the label in the plugin from “Search snippets by tags” to “Search snippets by tags or titles”.
