# Hello! I am new to Kakoune and I am currently writing a latex symbol completion plugin

So I am writing a plugin for latex symbol completions, is there a way where once I type \phi it will then replace \phi with its respective symbol ϕ and not just \phi? I know this blog Intro to Kakoune completions - Screwtape's Notepad exists but I am kinda stuck because I want it to replace the \phi with its symbol. Hoping for a kind reply

EDIT: I apologize in advance as I am also new to kakoune scripting too

Hi uncomfyhalomacro, and welcome to the community!

Have a look at tex-input.kak for some ideas. I tried like this kakoune-math.kak and let kakoune-snippet-collection or snippet.kak do the heavy lifting.

But if your like me all that will do is rob you of a learning opportunity when your just getting started. So, when I first started I lived here kakoune/rc/tools to build a good knoweledge base of kakounescript.

Hope this will help you on starting your kakoune journey and heres a beat to get you going.
