View Full Version : Kate text editor snippets

I could be being a bit daft here but....
Having recently made the switch to kde (arch), I'm trying to get into using kate for my programming needs.

It comes with a "snippets" plugin, but from what I can tell there is not cursor control and the snippets don't seem to allow tab completion (?).

Does anyone use kate snippets, is there a good guide for their use, I assume the snippets plugin is not as simple as it seems.

Unfortunately it *is* that simple, it is almost worthless. I am hoping that eventually a more complete snippets plugin is developed. This is the only area where gedit > kate.
