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.

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>

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).
