Emmet(previously called Zen Coding) is a set of tools, normally added to the IDE or the text editor by using a third party plugin or extension that allow web developers to speed up writing HTML and CSS. Because Emmet is an open source project, you’ll find a plenty of open source plugins that you can install for your favorite text editor like Notepad++, Sublime Text, Eclipse and even Visual Studio.
For the developers who have some knowledge in C#, Emmet is very similar to C# snippets that are built-in Visual Studio IDE like
- ctor for creating a constructor to the class file
- prop for adding a class property
