Clojure LSP snippets are editor agnostic, usable in any editor that supports clojure-lsp, making them more useful that editor specific snippets.

Clojure LSP snippets are defined using the EDN syntax and supports tab stops, placeholders with default values and can pull in a following form ($current-form).

Built-in snippets are defined in the clojure-lsp.feature.completion-snippet namespace.
