I've downloaded a bunch of custom snippets to ~/.custom/snippets/. My snippet files are named python.snippets, cpp.snippets, etc. I don't have ultisnips or any other snippet plugin installed, just coc.nvim and its friends, including coc-snippets.

When I'm working in a python file, :CocCommand snippets.editSnippets opens the correct snippets file. :CocCommand workspace.showOutput snippets returns the following:

[Info REDACTED] Using ultisnips directories: UltiSnips /home/user_name/.custom/snippets
[Info REDACTED] Using ultisnips python command: pyx

Here's the config for coc.nvim in my .vimrc (mostly default settings provided on github):

" coc.nvim
" Use tab for trigger completion with characters ahead and navigate.
" NOTE: Use command ':verbose imap <tab>' to make sure tab is not mapped by
" other plugin before putting this into your config.
inoremap <silent><expr> <TAB>
        \ pumvisible() ? "\<C-n>" :
        \ <SID>check_back_space() ? "\<TAB>" :
        \ coc#refresh()
inoremap <expr><S-TAB> pumvisible() ? "\<C-p>" : "\<C-h>"

function! s:check_back_space() abort
      let col = col('.') - 1
         return !col || getline('.')[col - 1]  =~# '\s'

" Use <c-space> to trigger completion.
inoremap <silent><expr> <c-space> coc#refresh()

" Use <cr> to confirm completion, `<C-g>u` means break undo chain at current
" position. Coc only does snippet and additional edit on confirm.
if exists('*complete_info')
    inoremap <expr> <cr> complete_info()["selected"] != "-1" ? "\<C-y>" : "\<C-g>u\<CR>"
        imap <expr> <cr> pumvisible() ? "\<C-y>" : "\<C-g>u\<CR>"

        execute 'h '.expand('<cword>')
        call CocAction('doHover')

" Highlight the symbol and its references when holding the cursor.
autocmd CursorHold * silent call CocActionAsync('highlight')

" Symbol renaming.
nmap <leader>rn <Plug>(coc-rename)

" Formatting selected code.

" Add `:OR` command for organize imports of the current buffer.
command! -nargs=0 OR   :call     CocAction('runCommand', 'editor.action.organizeImport')

" Add (Neo)Vim's native statusline support.
" NOTE: Please see `:h coc-status` for integrations with external plugins that

set statusline^=%{coc#status()}%{get(b:,'coc_current_function','')}

" Mappings using CoCList:

let g:coc_snippet_prev = '<c-k>'

This is my ~/.vim/coc-settings.json file:

// .vim/coc-settings.json
    "suggest.autoTrigger": "trigger",
    "suggest.triggerAfterInsertEnter": true,
    "snippets.userSnippetsDirectory": "$HOME/.custom/snippets"

Pressing <C-Space> should give me snippets. However, it doesn't seem to be giving me the right snippets from ~/.custom/snippets/. I'm not sure if it's loading the snippets correctly and I've done some basic checking from the repo's FAQ.

How should I configure my coc-snippets?

    Can you please edit to remove irrelevant parts of your config? Try to find a minimum viable config that reproduces your answer. Also see our how to debug QA and realize that you may have better luck talking to plugin authors/maintainers – D. Ben Knoble May 28 at 12:55
