BBEdit Clippings Library

Welcome! Please peruse and enjoy, but before you start, here are a couple of important reminders:

These are just the clippings sets that we know about. There are many more out there! The BBEdit Extras wiki is a great place to look for clippings and more. (This is a community-maintained resource, and is not an official publication of Bare Bones Software.)

BBEdit Clippings

Please note that Clippings sets require a version of BBEdit which includes the Clippings feature (we recommend BBEdit 10). This precludes using these sets with BBEdit Lite or TextWrangler.
