I've been playing with Sublime Text 2 recently and have quite enjoyed how quiet my ageing laptop is when the fans aren't running due to a Java-based IDE.

As with a lot of editors, Sublime Text supports snippets which are essentially text expansions of a short phrase into more text. I needed to create a few getXxx() and setXxx() methods for some properties of a class and decided that the easiest way to do this would be with a snippet.

To create a snippet, go to Tools->New Snippet... and replace the code example provided with this:

<snippet>
    <content><![CDATA[public function get${1/(.*)/u$1/}()
{
    return $this->${1:$SELECTION};
}

public function set${1/(.*)/u$1/}($$1)
{
    $this->$1 = $$1;
    return $this;
}
]]></content>
    <!-- Optional: Tab trigger to activate the snippet -->
    <tabTrigger>getset</tabTrigger>
    <!-- Optional: Scope the tab trigger will be active in -->
    <scope>source.php</scope>
    <!-- Optional: Description to show in the menu -->
    <description>Create getter and setter methods</description>
</snippet>

Save the file as getset.sublime-snippet and you're done.

To use, simply type getset followed by tab (in the latest dev builds, at least) and it will automatically expand. Alternatively, select some text and use shift+cmd+p -> getset to automatically replace the selected text with the get and set methods completed for the text that was selected.
