Snip It v1.0b1

One of the new features introduced with Movable Type 4 is template snippets. These are small bits of template code that can be easily inserted using the drop down menu on the template editor. TextMate users will feel right at home - if the syntax editor is on, simply type the snippet trigger and hit tab for the snippet to be completed.

This new feature was just begging for a plugin and thus Snip It, a plugin which allows you to populate your own template snippets.


Movable Type versions: 4.3

Sweet, this little plugin rocks, thanks heaps Arvind! Now if this could just be incorporated into the weblog entry editor as well to drop in code for, say, media players etc… :)

I’m gonna start by saying how usefull this plugin is. I’m using it to add all of the custom fields I have but I ran into an issue. I added several fields.. and now I have enough so that they don’t fit on the screen and it won’t scroll vertically. I believe it would be great if you could add as many snippets as you wanted and it would scroll to reveal all of them.
