console.log macro in Sublime Text

Here’s how to make a selection macro in Sublime Text. 
Type the word “beer”, select it, then press a key to turn it into a console.log statement!
Here’s how to do it:
1. Create the console.log template:
Click Tools > Developer > New Snippet…
Paste the following:


<![CDATA[
console.log(“$SELECTION”);
]]>
log

Save the above as log.sublime-snippet
2. Create a keybinding to the snippet:
Click Sublime Text > Preferences > Key Bindings
Paste this bit into the middle of the keymap:
 {
  “keys”: [“ctrl+shift+l”], 
  “command”: “insert_snippet”, 
  “args”: { “name”: “Packages/User/log.sublime-snippet” } },
Save it.
To use, type beer in your program. Double-click to select it, then hit your “log this message” keyboard command ctrl+shift+l.

Boom!

console.log(“beer”);
