There are currently two versions available:

  • The new v2 version (beta) is a brand new rewrite with many new features and improvements. We recommend all new users to use this version, as the previous one is not being actively maintained anymore.

  • The legacy version 0.7.3 is the first edition. Given that this version is no longer in active development, we recommend users to choose the new version instead, which comes with many new improvements and features.


Hi! I'm Federico, the creator of espanso. I develop espanso in my (little) spare time and I decided to make it open source because I thought it could be useful to many people.

If you liked the project, please consider making a small donation, it really helps :)

A special thanks goes to all the wonderful people who supported espanso along the way

Together, we will make espanso the first universal text expander, open to everyone.


Espanso is open source and hosted on GitHub.


If you find a bug or have an idea for a new feature, please open an issue on GitHub.
