C++ code indentation and formatting based on LibFormat

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      LibFormat is a library which is used by clang-format and contains most of its functionality.

      Since our built-in code indentation/formatting lacks the support for modern C++ it can be a good idea to use formatting provided by clang.

      Advantages:

      • better modern C++ support
      • more formatting settings than currently
      • many projects already have configuration file for it (.clang-format)

      Problems found so far:

      • clang-format does not expect unfinished statements
      • tricking clang-format to indent unfinished statements is quite complicated and is not reliable
      • ideally requires some upstream changes to avoid tricks from QtC side
