g:UltiSnipsExpandTrigger doesn't work as expected

Bug Description

When editing html files, snippets work wonderfully as long as there's a whitespace before the snippet keyword. That means that, for example, if I were to try and insert a snippet directly after an html tag, it won't work. For example:


Triggering g:UltiSnipsExpandTrigger (with <C-j> in my case) will not trigger the input snippet, whereas:

<div> input|

Hitting <C-j> in that case works perfectly. I would expect both of them to work.

The output of :py import sys; print sys.version:
2.7.5 (default, May 29 2013, 02:28:51)
[GCC 4.8.0]

you need to use the inword (i) or word boundary (w) options - see the docs https://github.com/SirVer/ultisnips/blob/master/doc/UltiSnips.txt#L605

Changed in ultisnips:

Thank you very much for your response!
I was wondering, then, if it wouldn't make more sense to make the snippets from the file html.snippets use the "w" option, since it is rather common to trigger them after a closing tag. I attached a patch with the changes I made to those snippets. I added the w option to those snippets that are most likely to be triggered after a tag. For your consideration.
