YASnippet

I’ve been looking for a way to jump start my blog post authoring process via text expansion or templating within Emacs. Just haven’t had the time to go digging. Luckily a potential solution came to me: YASnippet

YASnippet is a template system for Emacs. It allows you to type an abbreviation and automatically expand it into function templates. … The snippet syntax is inspired from TextMate’s syntax, you can even import most TextMate templates to YASnippet.

Source code and info from EmacsWiki.
