A collection of snippets for use with [snipmate](http://github.com/msanders/snipmate.vim)
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](http://github.com/scrooloose/snipmate-snippets).
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](http://github.com/spf13/snipmate.vim) of snipmate that simply removes the original snippets,
but is otherwise identical to the original [snipmate](http://github.com/msanders/snipmate.vim)
git clone https://email@example.com/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](http://github.com/spf13/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:
