Magento Front End Snippets, plugin for Sublime Text.

This tool serves to aid the productivity during the Magento's theme development through snippets. These snippets brings partial codes belonging the Magento framework. These code that we used everyday, but never memorized because they are often complex and lengthy.


Install via Package Control

How do I use it?

The tab trigger of this plugin is "mg-*".

In some editors just the tab key don't trigger the snippet, so you have to check few things to make magic happens like on gif below.

  1. Check if you don't have set key binding for user (if so you have to remove it):
    { "keys": ["tab"], "command": "insert_best_completion", "args": {"default": "\t", "exact": true} },
  2. If it still doesn't work add to your user settings below line:
    "tab_completion": false,
  3. Some people have assigned CTRL+Space as the snippet trigger
  4. Check if another package is not coliding with snippet trigger (i.e. Emmet can cause some issues with Sublime Text 3 Snippet usage)
