vim-skeletons

Quickly scaffold template files in your favorite editor using UltiSnips templates

Intro

Basic output example of vim-skeleton

This project is based on skeletons.vim and expanded from it.

The idea is to scaffold skeleton files when creating new files with vim, but add the power of snippets generating using UltiSnips.

For any information on the snippets engine see UltiSnips

Installation

This plugin follows the standard runtime path structure, and can be installed with a variety of plugin managers:

NeoBundle

NeoBundle 'pgilad/vim-skeletons'

Pathogen

git clone https://github.com/pgilad/vim-skeletons ~/.vim/bundle/vim-skeletons

Vundle

Plugin 'pgilad/vim-skeletons'

VAM

call vam#ActivateAddons([ 'vim-skeletons' ])

Manual

copy all of the files into your ~/.vim directory

Usage

vim-skeletons is shipped with sample skeletons, thus you will need to either add your own skeletons or add a skeleton repository.

PRs for example skeletons will be happily accepted

To activate vim-skeletons you can use :SkeletonsOn. Or just set in your .vimrc:

let skeletons#autoRegister = 1

You can change the skeletons directory:

let skeletons#skeletonsDir += "~/.dotfiles/vim/skeletons"

Skeletons

Loading and Filetypes

Skeletons are loaded from skeletons#skeletonsDir. They follow the following pattern:

skeleton-name.<extra>.<filetype>, for example:

  • skeleton.js for Javascript files.
  • skeleton.angular.js for Angular.js Javascript files.
  • skeleton.backbone.js for Backbone.js Javascript files.
  • skeleton.jquery.js for Jquery Javascript files.

You can also have multiple skeletons for a filetype, and when you open a new file vim-skeletons will ask you which skeleton you want to use for that filetype, the default being the file without the extra field. In our examples skeleton.js.

Skeleton Details

A skeleton can be:

  • A blank file
  • A file with any text in it
  • An UltiSnips template

After creating a new file, vim-skeleton will interpolate the skeleton using the UltiSnips engine, thus allowing you to set defaults, use snippet structure and anything else you can think of.

An example skeleton skeleton.php is included:

<?php

namespace ${1:`!v PathToNamespace(expand("%:h"))`};

class ${2:`!v expand("%:t:r")`}
{
    ${3}
}

Global Commands

SkeletonsOn

Call :SkeletonsOn to make vim-skeletons auto-register for creation of new files.

SkeletonsOff

Call :SkeletonsOff to disable vim-skeletons for new files.

SkeletonsReload

If make any changes to the skeletons directory or files you can reload them via :SkeletonsReload.
