LiveTemplate - file name without extension

I want to create a live template for test files that have name like "SomeComponent.spec.jsx", where the component being tested is automatically imported, e.g.

 

import './$FILENAME$.jsx';

 

The filenameWithoutExtension function doesn't work here as it only strips the last extension, leaving me with "SomeComponent.spec". I tried a few combinations of other functions but couldn't find anything that worked. The groovy one looked promising until I ran into the same problem as this: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000759284-WebStorm-Live-Templates-variables-groovyScript-groovy-code-not-working- 

 

Is there a way of getting the filename without any extension in this case with the existing (working!) webstorm live template functions?

Hi there,

Have you thought about calling that "filenameWithoutExtension function" again? Something like this (or whatever the right syntax is):

filenameWithoutExtension(filenameWithoutExtension(FILENAME))

Ooo, nice idea, hadn't thought of that! Sadly it doesn't seem to work - I still get "SomeComponent.spec" as the value - I suspect that fileNameWithoutExtension ignores any arguments I give it and just returns the value based off the current filename, so nesting it has no effect

I did this using regularExpression:

regularExpression(fileNameWithoutExtension(), ".spec$", "")

I had the same problem. I decided to use just a simple variable and use the autocomplete function to suggest the filename for me.
