How can I insert a timestamp using clips in Coda for OSX?

This is the "snippet" in Textmate

$`date '+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M'`

My answer is to use TextExpander. I prefer this over a single "coda" based solution because it becomes universal. So to do this in text expander I would simply create a new snippet with the following as the input (It has full date support built in):

+%Y-%m-%d %H:%M

Save the abbreviation and you should be good to go!

Thanks for that. I've used another package for that as well. I'm looking for a Coda-based solution, but +1 anyway. – Dan Rosenstark Dec 4 '09 at 13:52
