# Sublime – AngularJS – Useful Auto-complete Snippets

This article presents code samples and instructions to configure your Sublime editor to include ng (angular) scripts in auto-complete fashion. I found it important to get quickly started with my new angular apps. Based on following, you could define custom autocomplete snippets for all angular scripts.

Following are the steps to create snippet file for each angularjs script:

• In Sublime Text Editor, go to Tools > New Snippet. A new untitled file consisting of following code would open:
<snippet>
<content><![CDATA[
Hello, ${1:this} is a${2:snippet}.
]]></content>
<!-- Optional: Set a tabTrigger to define how to trigger the snippet -->
<!-- <tabTrigger>hello</tabTrigger> -->
<!-- Optional: Set a scope to limit where the snippet will trigger -->
<!-- <scope>source.python</scope> -->
</snippet>
• Write following code within CDATA by replacing with code such as “Hello….”. The code would look like following.
<content><![CDATA[
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/$1.$2.$3/angular.min.js"></script> ]]></content> • Give an appropriate name within “TabTrigger” element. This would be name you would write in the editor followed by ctrl + “space bar” to autocomplete. I put the name such as “jsng”. The code would look like following: <tabTrigger>jsng</tabTrigger> • Write the source type as “text.html” within scope element. The code would like following: <scope>text.html</scope> • Once done with above steps, its time to save the file. The file name must end with .sublime-snippet. You could choose format such as filetype-triggername.sublime-snippet. For above, I used filename such as html-jsng.sublime-snippet • Close and re-open the sublime. Test by writing “js” and ctrl + “space bar” to see autocomplete option. You shall find your snippet displayed for selection. Once you select, you would see “/../”. This is left empty to put the version name. You could type in as 1.2.23 as per the current version and you are all set. You could however choose to create snippet for different versions separately. ###### Code Samples for Inclusion of AngularJS Scripts The code below represents custom auto-complete snippet for following AngularJS libraries. Create snippet files for following scripts based on above instructions. • angular.min.js: Type “jsng” & ctrl + “space bar” to include angular.min.js • angular-route.js: Type “jsngroute” & ctrl + “space bar” to include angular-route.min.js • angular-resource.js: Type “jsngresource” & ctrl + “space bar” to include angular-resource.min.js Sublime Snippet for Inclusion of Angular.min.js <snippet> <content><![CDATA[ <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/$1.$2.$3/angular.min.js"></script>
]]></content>
<tabTrigger>jsng</tabTrigger>
<scope>text.html</scope>
</snippet>

<snippet>
<content><![CDATA[
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/$1.$2.$3/angular-route.min.js"></script> ]]></content> <tabTrigger>jsngroute</tabTrigger> <scope>text.html</scope> </snippet> Sublime Snippet for Inclusion of Angular-resource.min.js <snippet> <content><![CDATA[ <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/$1.$2.$3/angular-resource.min.js"></script>
]]></content>
<tabTrigger>jsngresource</tabTrigger>
<scope>text.html</scope>
</snippet>
