Whether you are coding or writing the next vampire best-seller, you’re likely to need certain short fragments of text again and again. Use snippets to save yourself tedious typing. Snippets are smart templates that will insert text for you and adapt it to their context.

To create a new snippet, select Tools | New Snippet…. Sublime Text will present you with an skeleton for a new snippet.

Snippets can be stored under any package’s folder, but to keep it simple while you’re learning, you can save them to your Packages/User folder.

Snippets typically live in a Sublime Text package. They are simplified XML files with the extension sublime-snippet. For instance, you could have a greeting.sublime-snippet inside an Email package.

The structure of a typical snippet is as follows (including the default hints Sublime Text inserts for your convenience):

The snippet element contains all the information Sublime Text needs in order to know what to insert, whether to insert it and when. Let’s see all of these parts in turn.

  • If you want the get a literal $, you have to escape it like this: \$.
  • When writing a snippet that contains indentation, always use tabs. The tabs will be transformed into spaces when the snippet is inserted if the option translateTabsToSpaces is set to true.

Snippets have access to contextual information in the form of environment variables. Sublime Text sets the values of the variables listed below automatically.

You can also add your own variables to provide extra information. These custom variables are defined in .sublime-options files.

With the help of field markers, you can cycle through positions within the snippet by pressing the Tab key. Fields are used to walk you through the customization of a snippet once it’s been inserted.

First black black YTTY Flat 35 Flat Flat Shoes 35 YTTY Flat Shoes 35 black YTTY YTTY Shoes Shoes Name: $1
Second Name: $2
Address: $3

In the example above, the cursor will jump to $1 if you press Tab once. If you press Tab a second time, it will advance to $2, etc. You can also move backwards in the series with Shoes Flat YTTY Shoes 35 black Shoes Flat YTTY black 35 Flat YTTY YTTY 35 black Shoes Flat Shift+Tab. If you press Tab after the highest tab stop, Sublime Text will place the cursor at the end of the snippet’s content so that you can resume normal editing.

If you want to control where the exit point should be, use the $0 mark.

You can break out of the field cycle any time by pressing Esc.

By expanding the field syntax a little bit, you can define default values for a field. Place holders are useful when there’s a general case for your snippet but you still want to keep its customization convenient.

First Name: ${1:Guillermo}
Second Name: ${2:López}
Address: ${3:Main Street 1234}
User name: $1

Variables can be used as place holders:

First Name: ${1:Guillermo}
Second Name: ${2:López}
Address: ${3:Main Street 1234}
User name: ${4:$TM_FULLNAME}

And you can nest place holders within other place holders too:

This section is a draft and may contain inaccurate information.

In addition to the place holder syntax, tab stops can specify more complex operations with substitutions. Use substitutions to dynamically generate text based on a mirrored tab stop.

The substitution syntax has the following syntaxes:

  • ${var_name/regex/format_string/}
  • ${var_name/regex/format_string/options}
The variable name: 1, 2, 3…
Perl-style regular expression: See the Boost library reference for regular expressions.

Optional. May be any of the following:
