Last weekend, I joined Webgeek Devcup but did not present anything as I was not ready. It was a really fun experience to join a hackathon for the first time. Great to have met some people there.
During the event, I started working on some VIM snippets though.
For those who use Textmate the Rails TM bundle, there's a snippet called "resources" that allows you create a nice controller with CRUD.
It renders something similar to the code below but this is a lot better:
class PostController < ApplicationController respond_to :html, :json before_filter :find_post, :only => [:show, :edit, :update, :destroy] def index @posts = Post.order('created_at DESC') end def show end def new @post = Post.new end def edit end def create @post = Post.new(params[:post]) if @post.save flash[:notice] = "The post was successfully created." respond_with @post else render action: "new" end end def update if @post.update_attributes(params[:post]) flash[:notice] = "The post was successfully updated." respond_with @post else render action: "edit" end end def destroy if @post.destroy flash[:notice] = "The post was successfully deleted." respond_with @post else redirect_to posts_path end end private def find_post @post = Post.find(params[:id]) end end
I worked on "resources" snippet which renders that.
If you use Vundle, just include the following if you want to have snippets:
Bundle "MarcWeber/vim-addon-mw-utils" Bundle "tomtom/tlib_vim" Bundle 'bridgeutopia/snipmate-snippets' Bundle "garbas/vim-snipmate" And :BundleInstall
I'll add more snippets as needed. So far, that's what I like about VIM. The ability to easily create snippets. Glad I got this VIM book for free.
Vim snippets are really helpful but I think speed in typing is the least concern in programming.comments powered byDisqus
