Bonus knowledge : How to find where Atom snippets comes from (on Ubuntu)
This might come in handy if you ever encounter another snippet problem...
There are three places where snippets can reside :
- in the file where you add your own snippets (
- in the directory where the community packages you installed are :
~/.atom/packages/(in a directory named
snippetsat the root of each packages)
- in the directory where Atom is installed (
/snap/atom/current/usr/share/atom/on Ubuntu, if installed through snaps, otherwise try
/usr/share/atom/but I'm not 100% sure)
To search for snippets, open all those places in Atom (..lol) and search for all instances of the snippet you are looking for (
CTRL + SHIFT + F) until you find a file containing it !
