Sync Typinator Snippets to Apple Snippets (iOS/macOS)

Hey MPUers,

I wanted to share a quick solution for converting your Typinator text snippets to Apple Text Snippets that can be used on iOS (since Typinator isn’t on iOS).

I’ve created an Alfred Workflow and a Python script (if you don’t use Alfred) that automates this conversion process. The script takes a CSV file as input (snippets can be exported in CSV from Typinator). It generates an plist file (Apple Text Snippets format). All you gotta do is:

  1. Open text snippet via settings. Select all and drag them to a directory. This will be your backup of the existing iOS snippets
  2. Delete the iOS snippets from the settings.
  3. Drag the newly generated plist file here.


Feel free to give the script a try and let me know if you have any questions or suggestions
