There are currently two versions available:

  • The legacy version 0.7.3 (stable) is the original one. It's battle-tested and is recommended to most users until the new v2 version becomes stable.
  • The new v2 version (alpha) is a brand new rewrite with many new features and improvements. Because it's still new, it's only recommended to early adopters and technical users, as it might be less stable than the legacy version.


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.
