  • How to automatically format Java code similar to Rust (rustfmt)?

    The code block you pasted is not at all what the Google Java Format utility would do. Don't use VSCode to handle IntelliJ's job :P

    Follow a style guide, doesn’t really matter which you choose, you’ll thank me later. This one will work automatically https://github.com/google/google-java-format

    I cloned a Maven plug-in that enforces Google code style guidelines (modifying a few things, like nesting depth): https://github.com/google/google-java-format
  • Creating custom formatter for Java
    3 projects | /r/javahelp | 15 May 2022
    I spent most of my development career writing simple CRUD applications, recently I read a fascinating article: http://journal.stuffwithstuff.com/2015/09/08/the-hardest-program-ive-ever-written/. It looks like a nice challenge to try creating such a tool. For sure I need first to understand how to build AST etc. I could reuse existing solutions like https://github.com/google/google-java-format, or eclipse fmt, but I would like to understand the whole process, to be able to debug all cases.

  • Zero Config Code Formatter?

    Eventually it was clear that google-java-format was pulling ahead, and it was clear that the primary reason for that was The Rectangle Rule -- a principle I'd vomited forth one day that somehow had gone the distance. Structure-revealing code turns out to be readable code, and our users kept preferring it.

    The Google Java Formatter which can be included as Plugin in IntelliJ can also be used as Standalone Jar https://github.com/google/google-java-format Also they are giving there best to have it idempotent as much as possible

    3) When in doubt, adopt Google's style guides. The reason I suggest this isn't that Google's is perfect, but that it's a well-accepted standard with a ton of linter/formatter/etc tooling around it. Here are some formatter/verifier plugins for various IDEs and Maven/etc. For Javascript, Google has a style guide too, but the tooling around Airbnb's one that's mostly the same is a bit better. I should note that all of these configs allow overrides/exceptions, so...if you feel strongly about tabs over spaces and so do the rest of the team, you can extend the config to do that. Do yourselves a favor though - when you adopt a style guide and format the code with it, make sure you do that as its own PR rather than mixed in with functionality. Otherwise you won't know what's changed.
