Yasnippet official snippet collections


Join the chat at

This repository contains the official collection of snippets for yasnippet.

You can see here a big HTML page with all the available snippets grouped by mode.

How to install

From melpa

You can install this package from melpa, by first ensuring that you have the melpa source in your package-archives.

(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives
             '("melpa" . "") t)

Once that is done, then just refresh the packages and install it with.

  • M-x package-refresh-contents
  • M-x package-install yasnippet-snippets

Now all the snippets will load automatically, as soon as yasnippet loads.

On Debian ≥10 and derivatives such as Ubuntu ≥ 18.10

sudo apt install elpa-yasnippet-snippets


If you have any useful snippets for any language or framework, then please feel free to contribute, by opening a PR or an issue if you have any suggestions.

To study the current snippets, I suggest that you use M-x yas-describe-tables, which will show a table representation of all the snippets that are available in the current mode.


Snippets need to be generic enough to be useful for everyone, and not contain anything specific to your own system.

Various notes

HTML snippets

Until September 1st 2014 there were a lot of HTML snippets in the repository, which sometimes were useful, but I came to the conclusion that yasnippet was not the right tool for them, so they were removed in this pull request:

To everyone writing a lot of HTML I suggest using emmet mode instead, which is a much more powerful mode for writing HTML tags.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
