TIL Raycast Snippets

  1. Raycast Snippets work just like iPhone text replacement when "keyword" (trigger) is set

  2. Snippets can have Dynamic Placeholder that can be used e.g. current date & time, etc.

My use case: blog front matter

Following snippet

--- title: date: "{date "yyyy-MM-dd"}" ---

will become like so when set keyword is typed and waited for like 1 second

--- title: date: "2023-07-31" ---


Edit: 2023-08-15 Snippet doesn't work reliably sometimes.
