✅ Why use code templates and snippets?
Many people ask why a coder would use a template, when they could easily make their own version from scratch. The truth is that both methods have their place in modern development.
If a certain tasks becomes mindless or repetitive, it may be a good time to use a template. For instance, creating a blank HTML file from scratch every time is obviously not a great use of time, when more important things exist in life: great TV, food, etc. Just use your time wisely – and use a template if it helps.
🚭 Why not to use code templates and snippets?
If you’re trying to learn something, the old adage is true: practice makes perfect. For that reason, if you’re learning something (in school or elsewhere) where the point of the exercise is to learn the basics, then it’s not a good idea to use a template or snippets.
More specifically, repetition and actually doing the task is the only way you’ll gain a fundamental familiarity with something. If you rely on a template every time, and never force yourself to learn the basics, you may have difficulty learning more advanced concepts.
