A collection of snippets for use with snipmate
This repository is far more complete than the base snippets shipped with snipmate and is actively being contributed to.
There are over 50 contributors creating snippets for a variety of languages. I have done my best to pull together the best of them and package them together here. The original was created by Scrooloose.
There isn't an emphasis on a particular language, though it would seem most snippet users are ruby users, and this seems to be the most complete.
This is intended to replace the snippets that ship with snipmate as most (all) are reproduced here and will collide. I have a fork of snipmate that simply removes the original snippets, but is otherwise identical to the original snipmate
rm ~/.vim/snippets git clone https://firstname.lastname@example.org/spf13/snipmate.vim.git ln -s /path/to/repo ~/.vim/snippets
I have a complete vim configuration which includes both snipmate and these snipets as git submodules. It is available via github at spf13-vim.
It makes use of patogen to keep a very organized and clean .vim directory.
snipMate.vim implements some of TextMate's snippets features in Vim. A snippet is a piece of often-typed text that you can insert into your document using a trigger word followed by a [tab].
Snippets can be defined in two ways. They can be in their own file, named after their trigger in 'snippets/[filetype]/[trigger].snippet', or they can be defined together in a 'snippets/[filetype].snippets' file.
To create a snippet with multiple matches using *.snippet files, simply place all the snippets in a subdirectory with the trigger name: 'snippets/[filetype]/[trigger]/[name].snippet'.
