How to be set a key binding to "%>%" (R pipeline operator)?


New to Sublime Text.

Just want to set “Ctrl + Shift + m” to quick input %>% in R, like RStudio.

Key binging seems only to take command. It is definitely not a sort of snippet.

Any help, Thanks



An example key binding that does that is this:

    { "keys": ["ctrl+shift+m"], "command": "insert",
      "args": { "characters": "%>%" },
      "context": [
          { "key": "selector", "operator": "equal", "operand": "source.r" },

The characters argument to the insert command indicates what to insert; the context makes the binding only active while the current file is an R file.
