How to customize Sublime Text default Auto-complete

December 22, 2014

I use Sublime text 3 everyday, especially the JavaScript autocomplete feature.

For the if-statement, the default completion popup has an unnecessary semicolon at the end.

    if (true) {};

Using JSHint, it gives me an error for most of the code I written.

It is counterproductive to manually delete it everytime.

Here is a solution for this problem:

  1. Go to **Preferences **→ **Browse Packages **to open the Sublime Text Folder.
  2. Find the folder called JavaScript (if it doesn’t exist, create one).
  3. In the folder, open **if.sublime-snippet (**if it doesn’t exist, create one)
  4. Delete the semi-colon so your snippet now looks like this:
    <snippet> <content><![CDATA[if (${1:true}) {${0:$TM_SELECTED_TEXT}}]]></content> <tabTrigger>if</tabTrigger> <scope>source.js</scope> <description>if</description> </snippet>
