Vimified? efficient HTML with sparkup


2012-06-17

Last week I found a nifty Vim plugin that lets write HTML code faster and easier. It's called sparkup: the idea is to use a shortcut language inspired by CSS which expands to valid HTML code while hitting <C-e>. The language greatly reduces the amount of characters that need to be written in order to create HTML tags.

Simple example:

#foo.bar.baz.cuuz<C-e>

will expand to

<div id="foo" class="bar baz cuuz"></div>

Here is a short video I've recorded with ascii.io to show it looks in practice with examples taken from the sparkup README.

The plugin has been added to vimified into html package. Enjoy!
