else {

which is the best sequence of keys or options?

    There is a very similar question with a nice answer: stackoverflow.com/a/35469843/1365754. With smartparens you can add a local pair to do this. I have one for css-mode for instance: (sp-local-pair 'css-mode "{" nil :post-handlers '(:add ("||\n[i]" "RET"))). Then if you press RET when at { | } this will do what you want I think.

The easiest way I can think of is to open a new line with C-o then RET.
