Perhaps PHP should include embedding.php? I'm guessing this based on the conversation here: sublimehq/Packages#24

Also, maybe it'd be worth adding Jade: text.jade.

great list my man; and a serious 👍 for @vikjam's suggestion.

love this. needed the markdown bit.

Possible to add different <scope>...<scope>s within one same file or one same line?

Right now I have this...

import React, { Component } from 'react';

class $1 extends Component {
  render() {
    return (

export default $1
  <!-- Optional: Set a tabTrigger to define how to trigger the snippet -->
  <!-- Optional: Set a scope to limit where the snippet will trigger -->

I would like my snippet to work both in files ending in js and jsx.

Use commas to add multiple scopes.

Typescript (fairly self explanatory):
<scope>source.tsx</scope> / <scope>source.ts</scope>

Copy link

For people from future:

You can now check all scopes here.
And don't forget to use Ctrl + Alt + Shift + P to show the current scope (or Tools > Developer > Show Scope Name).

Thank you @mariovalney! You're a life saver.
I knew about the existence of this list and I still couldn't find it for the longest time.
I wanted to add a Sublime Snippet that works only works in *.sublime-project files. It turns out that the scope is source.json.sublime.
Now hopefully I don't forget about Ctrl + Alt + Shift + P the next time I need it in a year or so... 😕

Great list and updates y'all, but as there's always room for improvement, how about any possibility of using wildcard characters that would match all scopes or situation where scoping cannot be defined like edit-in-progress / unsaved text file ? Does something like source.* or text.* works inside scope tags to cover all scopes ? I think that would be a great next level if it's already there or somehow possible, right ?

For example when I am doing some long typing, and I type st-st and hit Tab, it would translate to step-by-step and such cases...
