Setting Up Org Mode Source Code Block Snippets In Spacemacs (Emacs)

TODO: Roll this into the other post where you show the actual snippets that you used (assuming you can find it)

Took a bit to figure this one out. The goal it to setup snippets that auto expand into Org mode source code blocks. By default, you can type "SPC m i b s" when you're not in edit mode to generate a generic source code block like this:

#+begin_example

#_+begin_src

#_+end_src

#+end_example

That's a lot of keys and you still have to define the language and any other options. I made the following additions to the `defun dotspacemacs/user-config` section at the bottom of my `~/.spacemacs` config file to make it nicer.

Code

(defun dotspacemacs/user-config ()
    (require 'org-tempo)
    (add-to-list 'org-structure-template-alist
                 '("j" . "src js :results output"))
    (add-to-list 'org-structure-template-alist
                 '("p" . "src python :results output"))
    )

The `(require 'org-tempo)` line turns on some default snippet expansions like `

The `add-to-list` items let me type `

#+begin_example

#_+begin_src js :results output

#_+end_src

#+end_example

and

#+begin_example

#_+begin_src python :results output

#_+end_src

#+end_example
