Quick i18n Tip for Sublime Text Users

Do you hate wrapping your content with i18n tags? Yeah me too, however your editor might do this much easier for you. Here’s a quick tip on how you can create a shortcut to add e.g. a Django trans template tag around a string in Sublime Text:

1. Open your keymap preferences: Sublime Text → Preferences → Key Bindings (User)

2. Add the following snippet there:

{ 
 "keys" : ["ctrl+shift+g"], 
 "command" : "insert_snippet",
 "args": {
 "contents": "{% trans \"${0:$SELECTION}\" %}"
 }
}

Now when you select the text and hit ctrl+shift+g, it wraps the text with Django’s i18n template tag like this:

{% trans "Continue" %}
