asgs10821314dWriting code from memory by hand is not something a Developer does
I don't know about live templates but there is no shame in using a few snippets from SO or any other website as long as we know what we do
I use them, they are a nice addition for productivity. Mainly they are useful when writing boilerplate code, if I find myself doing same things over and over on the project I write a live template for it (if it makes sense)
Yet there is one that rules them all for my work:
"_todo" template generates "// TODO (my_name) "
line, I work in a massive code base so having todo's automated is a nice feature.
I have many more templates and all start with "_" prefix for nice autocomplete
Hazarth7105314dI use them occasionally, but my job doesn't include a lot of boilerplate. But I still find them useful as shortcuts for writing something with a lot of annotations or when wanting to automate stuff regarding our coding standards
Hazarth7105314dActually on top of Live Templates I also recommend the plugin Custom Postfix Templates. This allows you to write custom auto fills for when writing a dot after a variable. That can often save some good time too
ihavePCSD946314dI actually have never heard of live templates, so thanks I'm going to go try it
