SnippetsLab didn't support FM, any tool support?
There is a plugin called MBS plugin that can help you detect errors in your code
Monkeybread Software - MBS FileMaker Plugin 8.0
If you download MBS FileMaker Plugin and install it, you can use the FileMaker Snippet Storage.fmp12 file int he Examples/Third Party folder. It allows you to store snippets from FileMaker for free.
Clip Manager for Mac is a great tool for storing FileMaker snippets.
CampSoftware has FMClips that I use daily.

+1, I use this one all day every day. My clips are stored in my dropbox so I can use them from all my machines.
Depending what your needs are, you could also use a snippet tool like aText ($4.99) and have your snippets be hot-callable by any keyboard combination you need. No subscription. Perpetual license.
My IDE has the same built-in capability where you can define and hot-key call your code to use over and over, but aText seems like a good alternative.
There's possibly something to justify the $59 cost of the FMP solution above?
Well, I use Typinator to quickly insert text into calculation dialogs, etc. but as far as I can tell no keyboard snippet tool like aText or Typinator can insert entire scripts, script steps, field definitions or tables. To me, $59 is a no-brainer for a product that essentially stores all of my default field sets, starter scripts, etc.
Sounds good...makes sense.
Too bad that functionality isn't part of FMP itself.
Just for grins, I tried to download the trial version, but got this:
Agreed, but if I'm reading the official roadmap correctly it looks like they're working on a better way to migrate schema so fingers crossed.
Having a built-in way to reuse code is an obvious thing to have by version, gulp, 16.
Search & Replace, etc.
