Type less – SE80 Editor Code Templates
The “new” Editor has a few nice features that make it a bit less painful to use. I use them to prevent unnecessary typing of repetitively used Code-Blocks and to generate local Classes (Test, Exception and so on).
You can find a Collection of my Templates in a GitHub Repository. Over the time I’ll add further, so if you are interested, you may watch that Repository. I you like to contribute please feel free to send a pull request!
Here’s the Repository: https://github.com/zs40x/se80_templates

The disadvantage is that it cant be developed and maintained centrally as it can be deployed. So I'm still using the old Pattern with the Editor exit and insert code via this.
Yes, the the pattern cant be deployed and everyone needs to configure this for his own, too. But once its present I'm calling the code generator via RFC on an centralized system and changes here are reflected at once to everybody.
Of course, the overhead is big for snippets.
