WebStorm has this awesome feature they call Live Templates
where you can configure a text in a certain filetype to autocomplete
to something, even dynamic. See how I built the auto-completion for
dateC which becomes
dateCreated: 2020-05-02 15:27 CET, which is current date of course, in my custom format.
dateC + TAB
dateCreated: 2020-05-02 15:27 CET
I got tired of writing the metadata, I am using here in my tidbits (see the source)
over and over again, metadata such as the current
dateCreated, as seen before.
How to create this Live Template?
If you want to create the live template above do the following.
Shift + Cmd + A (for "Find Action")
Type "Live Template"
Select the one with "Preferences" behind it
