Snipper 0.1 released,

After some days of working on vim scripting in python, I wanted to try the real deal, write a script that is really useful, so I wrote a snippets script for vim.

For all of you who don't know what snippets are: snippets or templates are predefined pieces of text that you would like to insert in your text fast. You basically type an alias and press a button and the complete text is inserted.
I will be making a video of it soon but for now if you want more information, look at http://scribes.sourceforge.net/ or at http://macromates.com/, two cool editors for if you don't know vim :-)

So now everyone knows what snippets are, I can continue my explanation of my script that you can find on https://launchpad.net/snipper/, download it here
Documentation will be available very soon. (for installation and use)

This is the first version of the script, so expect some bugs. If you find any bugs that haven't been posted, please do (https://bugs.launchpad.net/snipper/)

I hope you like this script (if you do, please add a comment) and stay tuned for more info.

Hey nice work. It's quite similar to the way latex-suite (for vim) works, except they use ctl-J for 'jumping' from edit point to edit point.

You also might want to take a look at snippetsEmu, a plugin for vim that does something quite similar though it feels limited in many ways.

You should combine your efforts! latex-suite, snippetsEmu, and your snippets all essentially do the same templating stuff (though latex-suite does a lot more).

anyway, thanks for the nice work
