Then we all have a nice overview about the available options.
I'll tell you why you should consider joining snipmate/ UltiSnip community:
- UltiSnips is well tested
- snipmate-snippets is a comprehensive list of snippets which can now be
used with both: snipmate and UltiSnips
- both snipmate and UltiSnips reload snippet files automatically based
on timestamp. No need to remember any "reload" command
Thus writing a new snippet will be available in all vim instances.
- both support loading plugins from many files from runtimepath.
In both cases you can override this behaviour easily
- both projects have a comprehensive documentation.
Your first release was 2012-11-17.
UltiSnips dates back 2009. snipmate is also older.
If you want to serve the community document why you had to start from
scratch - so that its easier to judge which tool to use for what reason.
Vim is not about reinventing the wheel (IMHO).
But thanks for reminding me that I still have to port the autoindent
feature to UltiSnips :)
This mail only reflects my view. Its fine if other people think
Short note about "load snippets from other filetype":
I think you should map :set ft= or such, because then you also get
indentation and more support for the filetype you care about at that
moment. Its a more universal solution.
