How to use ClangFormat with Cinder

Install ClangFormat via your platform's package manager. On windows, download the installer and Visual Studio plugin from LLVM.

Download the .clang-format file from this Gist and save it to the root directory of your Cinder repo.

Format whole files from Terminal

clang-format -i -style=file [<file> ...]

From Sublime Text 3

Download the Clang Format plugin from Package Control (or manually).

Run the Clang Format: Select Style command and choose File. This will instruct clang-format to search up the directory tree and use the first .clang-format file it finds.

Select a few lines of source code and run Clang Format: Format Selection.

From Xcode

Check out ClangFormat-Xcode.

Known issues

These are things that differ from Cinder's code style but cannot be specified in ClangFormat.

  • A space is not inserted after the ! boolean operator.
  • Cinder has no enforced maximum line length, so array declarations tend to stay on one line.


If you find a place where this file fails to match Cinder's coding style, please fork this Gist and leave a comment!
