Project Snippets

Keep code snippets directly in your project repository and let anyone create files easily and quickly.

Quick start and how it works

Installation

First install package:

yarn add --dev project-snippets
 
# or npm 
 
npm install --save-dev project-snippets

Now you have available snippet command, let's use this in package.json as create script:

{
    "scripts": {
        "create": "snippet create"
    }
}

You can run this by typing yarn run create or npm run create, but first you need .snippets directory with your code templates.

Snippets directory

For example you like to make a snippet for components in /src/components/*.js, then .snippets directory structure should look like this:

.snippets/
    src/
        components/
            MySimpleComponent.snippet/    ← Snippet name, this dir will be omitted
                (SomeName).js.tpl         ← Snippet files or even directories
                (someName).css.tpl        ← .tpl extension is important!

Now after running the create command, you will see list for your snippets. If you select MySimpleComponent and then enter the name eg. circle button it will create a file:

src/
    components/
        …
        CircleButton.js
        circleButton.css
        …

Let's look inside the files.

Templates

Inside the files will we use ejs templates:

(SomeName).js.tpl:

import '<%= someName %>.css'
 
export function <%= SomeName %>() {
    // ...
}

And similarly for (someName).css.tpl.

.<%= someName %> {
    /* ... */
}

Finally that's all, now you can run this command again and you will receive ready to use CircleButton.js and circleButton.css files:

import 'circleButton.css'
 
export function CircleButton() {
    // ...
}
.circleButton {
    /* ... */
}

CLI options

  • --dry-run - show the contents of files without creating them

Variables

The following variables are now available:

  • camelCase: someName
  • pascalCase: SomeName
  • snakeCase: some_name
  • paramCase: some-name
  • constantCase: SOME_NAME

Custom variables

If you need more options for your snippet you can create the options.json file in snippet directory. (And remember: empty file = no file)

Example .snippets/src/components/Component.snippet/options.json:

[
    {
        "type": "confirm",
        "name": "styles",
        "message": "With styles?"
    },
    {
        "type": "confirm",
        "name": "tests",
        "message": "With unit tests?"
    }
]
