Snippets Generator v1.0 - Stable Version Now Available!

I am very happy to announce that the first stable version of Snippets Generator for SQL Server 2012 is now available!

Do you need to create T-SQL snippets for your SQL Server 2012 instance? Snippets Generator is the tool for the job! And of course: it's free! A small gift from me to you, the Community, because you are just awesome! :-)

Using the tool is very simple: You just enter some meta-information, the T-SQL script, and Snippets Generator generates the snippet in the form of an XML file that can be imported in SQL Server 2012 Management Studio (SSMS).

Here's a screenshot of the tool:

Snippets Generator is one of my CodePlex projects. The project was conceived in the end of 2010 and an alpha version was made available via a post on my blog in beginning 2011 for SQL Server 2012 CTP1.

In December 2011, I registered the project on CodePlex along with providing the beta version to the general public.

After some maturity time along with valuable feedback from you, today I am pleased to announce the first stable version of Snippets Generator for SQL Server 2012!


  • .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or later
  • Your creativity!!! :-)
