When creating a new HTML document, there's always that sluggish start before you should begin; Getting the boilerplate/skeleton of the HTML structure out of the way. You'll need something like this HTML before you can begin:
<!doctype html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8" /> <title>Document</title> </head> <body> </body> </html>
This mundane task (some may enjoy it...) can be almost completely eliminated with the use of a handy HTML5 doctype shortcut (once you have the Emmet plugin installed).
Save the blank document as an HTML file (so Emmet can actually identify the shortcut), and type html:5 followed by ctrl + e (Coda / Eclipse) OR tab (Sublime Text 2) OR whatever the trigger is inside of your IDE for expanding Emmet shortcut codes:
With Sublime Text 3 or a JetBrains based IDE (like WebStorm, IntelliJ, PHPStorm, etc.), you can simply use an exclamation mark (!) followed by a tab:
Check to see if your IDE supports Emmet
Speed ahead with this convenient HTML5 doctype shortcut with Emmet. Use responsibly.
