Markup snippets: Anywhere in your document, type uikit to see all available snippets. Scroll through them with your cursor keys and hit
RETURN to insert a snippet or
ESC to cancel. Use
TAB to step through positions in the snippet.
Note: In order for the suggestions to appear, your document needs to have the syntax set to HTML (or any child syntax like
HTML (PHP)). You can set the syntax from the menu
View > Syntax or via the Command Palette.
