If you like Textmate Snippits, consider installing Snipmate. From the Github page.

SnipMate aims to provide support for textual snippets, similar to TextMate or other Vim plugins like UltiSnips. For example, in C, typing for<tab> could be expanded to:
for (i = 0; i < count; i++) {
    /* code */
The project linked above appears to be a fork of the original plugin, but it's up to date, and it works!

Having tried Snipmate, I much prefer Ultisnips! First: there's an option to override snippets, so you can use the defaults for most things and then alter them to taste. Second: live updates! Nothing makes snippet expansion so useful as being able to tweak the snippet and try it on live code.

For me is much better. Have a look at it - not sure why so many people still use snipmate

Ultisnip is more powerful, IMHO.
