[Update Zen Coding] Zen Coding was outdated, switch to Emmet


This Zen Coding plugin is outdated and will never receive any updates in future. In two weeks the repo will be unpublished.

Consider switching to Emmet -- a re-branded Zen Coding project packed with new awesome features:

  • Dynamic CSS abbreviations, automatic vendor prefixes and gradient generator.
  • Better Tab key handler.
  • "Lorem Ipsum" generator.
  • Implicit tag names.
  • JavaScript extensions support.
  • New ^ operator.
  • Various fixes and improvements.

The new plugin is available in Package Control: just run "Install Package" command and install "Emmet" plugin. Please remove or disable current Zen Coding plugin in order to make things work right.

Extensive documentation about all Emmet features is available at http://docs.emmet.io Emmet GitHub at https://github.com/emmetio

Emmet rocks my only gripe is there does not appear to be a plugin / bundle for Textmate 2, my current goto editor.

Hey Emmet is good but i would recommend using Hayaku additionally . Then you are able to use a lot more abbreviations like h10 -> height: 10px; w50p -> width: 50% and so on. Check it out!

Mark Flavin// What was the problem? I use Sublime Text2. It's free. If you use this editor, you can install Emmet here. Let me know if you are interested in it.

Christoph Rumph// Thanks! I will also install it on my editor. Unfortunately, It seems that Hayaku only supports Sublime Text2. Is it correct? Emmet covers many various editors. But, I will compare both. :)
