My preferred code style is 2-space K&R. This is intended to provide a justification for this style.
K&R style has the following properties:
- Provides symmetric size (in terms of screen space consumed) between the opening and closing syntax of a clode block.
- Forces no empty/meaningless lines, thereby avoiding artificial distance between related things that should be together.
- Consumes the minimum vertical space while keeping the opening and closing syntax of the block on separate lines from the content.
