What is a snippet?

In terms of information technology, a snippet is a small section of text or source code that can be added into the code of Web page or a program. Snippets provide programmers and Web developers with an uncomlicated way to apply commonly used code into a larger section of code. In addition, they can also help programmers organize common code sections into categories and create a clean development environment. On Web development, snippets often contain HTML code in each store. While HTML snippets can be used to insert a formatted table, a Web form or a block of text, CSS snippets are used to apply formatting to a Web page.

In Shopify, the Snippets directory consists of all the theme’s Liquid snippet files that are bits of code which can be referenced in other templates of a theme. In the case that your customers are allowed to pay for their orders in multiple currencies, it is extremely essential to create a currencies snippet in your store.
