Snippets are small strings or code constructs which can be replaced or completed to a more complex string. So you can save a lot of time when typing common strings and letting Geany do the work for you. To know what to complete or replace Geany reads a configuration file called snippets.conf at startup. To edit the snippets.conf file with Geany open, go to Tools→Configuration Files→snippets.conf. Refer the the Geany Manual for more information about snippets.

The pages below are separated into sections based on the programming language the snippets apply to.
