Part of Emacs yes

Skeleton library can be used to create documents based on templates.

Keep some chars always balanced

Use the below setting to insert paired characters with just a single keystroke.

For example, typing '(' will automatically insert '()' in to the buffer. Similarly typing '{' will automatically insert '{}'. This way parenthesis, quotes etc will always remain balanced. This setting is quite useful if you are editing Emacs Lisp, C etc.

(require 'skeleton)
(setq skeleton-pair t)
(global-set-key "\"" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
(global-set-key "(" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
(global-set-key "[" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
(global-set-key "{" 'skeleton-pair-insert-maybe)
