Fast and reliable, easy to configure, and with text-based configuration files that you can easily share between computers and keep in source control.

Definitely not for averages users, cause it is not intuitive and in my modest opinion it is crude and cumbersome.

One of the best Privacy focused, open-source and cross-platform text expanders out there. Really like using it.

Unfortunately, many features do not work correctly in a lot of applications. For example: Arguments, Multi-line replacements and Passive Mode did not work correctly in any of my text editors. Espanso seems to only be truly reliable for very basic text expansions, which is of course still useful, but a bit disappointing.

It's a cool little nifty tool, but as of current state, lacks a lot of content. Maybe once it has more packages and a little bit more magic dust, might be willing to pick it up again. Good stuff, nonetheless.

Not super easy to configure but it works like a charm!
