  • Losing my mind with formatting | 2021-04-07
    I've used inspect.lua to inspect the client table and I can see valid-looking formatCommand settings (using the exact efm folder that u/lukas-reineke uses)

    For more complex string matching tasks that the built-in patterns cannot handle, LPeg is a good choice. It's more powerful than regexes while also being easy to use. I also wouldn't expect something like PCRE to ever be included in the Lua standard library. PCRE by itself would already be larger than the rest of the Lua interpreter + standard library.

    By the way, for formatting Lua tables I like using inspect[1]. (It's not part of the standard library but oh well, that's the whole topic of today's discussion).
