I frequently use org-mode Easy Templates and I noticed I often miss shortcut for comment block (
BEGIN_COMMENT/END_COMMENT) which is very useful from time to time.
Let's add that feature.
(add-to-list 'org-structure-template-alist '("C" "#+BEGIN_COMMENT\n?\n#+END_COMMENT" ""))
C is character used to trigger completion by entering
<C and pressing TAB - Emacs will then replace it with this block:
? is place where cursor will be set after expation.
Third argument in list I'm adding (empty string) is for Muse-like tags, which I'm not using at all.
Curious fact is that we are not limited to single character to trigger expansion - we can use words too:
(add-to-list 'org-structure-template-alist '("comment" "#+BEGIN_COMMENT\n?\n#+END_COMMENT" ""))
<comment and pressing TAB will again expand it to above comment block.
