Angular Directive Template for WebStorm

If you’re like me, you find yourself rewriting a lot of boilerplate code with Angular. Especially when creating new files. I just started using templates in WebStorm and it is quite the time saver!

Here’s my first one I use for creating a new directive. This utilizes the bindToController feature of directives for Angular 1.3+.

Take this code and create a new template with it in WebStorm by going to Preferences, Editor, File and Code Templates, then hitting the “+” button.

Once the template is in Webstorm, you can see it in the new file window:

You’ll then be prompted to fill out all of the variables:

Hope this saves some time!

P.S. For you Sublime Text users, you can use this as a ‘trigger’ as well for use in new files!
