Snipsnap was a blog/wiki written in Java. I used it from 2006 until 2013. This page acted as a source code archive with one utility and my Linux management tools. Most of what one might need is now available on github; it remains as host for HTMLMacro.jar.

  1. Snipsnap is now on Github Jan 2019
  2. I uploaded my management tools to github some time, in Nov 2017
  3. HTMLMacro.jar … 7 Kb … Download…., a user contribution; it implemented an HTML escape in the bliki content panels. I am not sure that it’s available elsewhere, if not I need to put it on github.


Much of this page’s long history is documented in the comments.

I brought this forward when implementing spacious. 4th April 2015

I gave up on snipsnap in Aug 2013. See here & here.

  1. I went back today and still can’t find it. So I have uploaded a .tgz file I had lying around and I am adding a share this button on this page. I havn’t a clue why the sizes are so different, if you’re lucky I’ll investigate and document it. I might also upload .torrent file when I work out how. For now, I’d recommend the larger file. 20 Mar 2009.

  2. Comments and size amended, comments about the original locations added. I should add HTMLMacro.jar to this page as well. 24 March 2009

  3. I have had the subversion pages pointed out to me and uploaded the HTMLMacro page. This page now points at the original source as well as hosting my tarballs and now HTML Macro, which is the only user contributed code I currently use. 7th July 2009

  4. I have just amended my snipsnap software mirror at on the static pages here. Funzel wrote to me the other week pointing out that the source code was available at its source forge project page via subversion or as a tar ball. I shall continue to post/mirror the package on my site and have now uploaded a copy of HTML Macro.jar. 8 July 2009

  5. I checked in July 2010, as I was looking at porting my Snipsnap due to the Qube’s final failure and found that my archives were corrupt, and the had gone. Leo has promised to restore it. I have uploaded a .tar. I’ll compress it and reload the .tgz later today. The .tar is 22 Mb so I obviously didn’t get it right when I uploaded the two files in March 2009. Bit Torrent will have to wait until I have a new web server and then only if I can find some other (people’s) servers to act as peers. 29 Jul 2010.

  6. One of the Source Forge links broke and I removed the link list; it only contained two source forge links and I suspect that if anyone’s looking for it they’ll no longer come via this page.

  7. While moving my “Downloads” repo to google drive, I found an old link to my locally hosted management tools, and refactored the page, again. It’s pretty dead as a project but important that I don’t keep dead links or suggest its any easier than to use than it is. I gave up on snipsnap in 2013. I have multiple articles on snipsnap on this wiki, including Snipsnap & Ubuntu which also talks about both installing and managing snipsnap.

  8. I removed this text today, “It’s home site is/was It was originally published at the Frauenhofer Institute. Shortly after I started with it the authors, Leo & Funzel left; the Institute took the site down. Leo recovered it and put it back on-line. It went away again but the source is now on Github at Jan 2019. There was a major revision of this page in 2014.”
