Automatic headers when opening a new python file with vim

How can I automatically add some skeleton code when creating a new file with vim

I googled and searched on SO for a way to create automatic headers when creating a new python file. I was hoping to find something with snipMate but couldn't find anything. I use bash-suport, perl-support that provide this functionality and like it. If it can help I am also a user of python-mode

  1. Is there a way to generate automatic headers with snipMate?
  2. If not where can I find examples ?

I would like something like this:

#-*- coding: utf-8 -*-
#         FILE:
#        USAGE: ./  
#      OPTIONS: ---
#         BUGS: ---
#        NOTES: ---
#       AUTHOR: YOUR NAME (), 
#      VERSION: 1.0
#      CREATED: 09/12/2012 13:38:51
#     REVISION: ---

def main():
    """docstring for main"""

Thanks a lot for reading

You don't need Snipmate for that. Save your header to a file, then add the following to your .vimrc:

au BufNewFile *.py 0r /where/you/saved/your/header.template

This inserts your header automatically for every .py file.

If you want a header with variables (e.g. changing dates, revision numbers, filenames, etc.), see this article and this for further help. But there are other plugin(s) to help you out.
