Enable in different mode

If you don't want to enable emmet in all modes, you can use set these options in

vimrc
:
let g:user_emmet_mode='n'    "only enable normal mode functions.
let g:user_emmet_mode='inv'  "enable all functions, which is equal to
let g:user_emmet_mode='a'    "enable all function in all mode.

Enable just for html/css

let g:user_emmet_install_global = 0
autocmd FileType html,css EmmetInstall

Redefine trigger key

To remap the default

 leader:
let g:user_emmet_leader_key=''

Note that the trailing

still needs to be entered, so the new keymap would be

Adding custom snippets

If you have installed the web-api for emmet-vim you can also add your own snippets using a custom snippets.json file.

Once you have installed the web-api add this line to your .vimrc:

let g:user_emmet_settings = webapi#json#decode(join(readfile(expand('~/.snippets_custom.json')), "\n"))
You can change the path to your snippets_custom.json according to your preferences.

Here you can find instructions about creating your customized snippets.json file.
