The question is about input patterns, not tab triggers. Here's what I can find on the subject:
So .. does it sound like I could set up a snippet/something to act like it fires on a 'space' (instead of a tab-trigger)
Yes -- basically you'd be able to get items to 'fire' on whatever typing sequence that can be matched by a non-greedy regular expression, which typing “br ” sure can :)
I say non-greedy because a pattern like “a.*b’ should match “abbb”, but the item will fire already when it sees “ab”, since making a greedy match would require look-ahead.
