YASnippet (Yet Another Snippet) is a template system for Emacs. It allows you to type an abbreviation and automatically expand it into function templates. Bundled language templates includes: C, C++, C#, Perl, Python, Ruby, SQL, LaTeX, HTML, CSS and more.

Basic setup

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/plugins/yasnippet")
(require 'yasnippet)
(yas/global-mode 1)

Helpful keybindings

[Tab]
Expand snippet.

Common Customization

Use Yasnippet with Hippie Expand

If you use Hippie Expand, you can add Yasnippet to the list of expansion functions. For example if you want to try expanding snippets first:

(setq hippie-expand-try-functions-list (cons 'yas/hippie-try-expand hippie-expand-try-functions-list))

You could do this globally, or for a specific mode using a mode hook.

Note: If you use [Tab] for Hippie Expand, consider using a prefix for your snippets. Otherwise you may be trying to tab between possible expansions and find yourself tabbing through fields in an expanded snippet instead.
