A snippet is a template file. It is a text file with a .snippet file name extension.

Inside the template file, there is a mix of boilerplate text and placeholders. An example: there could be a template maindoc.xhtml.snippet which could contain


The $$HEAD$$ and $$BODY$$ would be placeholders which will be replaced by the text for some lower-level granules.

This is only a sample: placeholders can take many shapes and forms, and the use of $$ as prefix/suffix is just what's used as the default placeholder pattern in Crawler.
