Code Completion for Markdown Snippets

I noticed thanks to a blog post by @pbaumgartner that you can create markdown snippets and use them in .Rmd and .Rmarkdown files.

My use case is to make it easier to type some common characters in my text, like em-dashes, en-dashes, and ellipses (here used as the plural of ellipsis, not of ellipse :slight_smile:), without having to remember alt-codes in Windows or Unicode escape codes in Linux.

Is there any way to enable auto-completion for the snippets I make for this? Or, could I even create my own auto-completion for this with something heavier like a package? I want to make my snippets and my workflow available to others, largely as a "fun project," and it feels like the best user experience would include code completion.

Thank you!!
