Tools for developing Git
== Summary
This document gathers tips, scripts and configuration file to help people
working on Git's codebase use their favorite tools while following Git's
coding style.
=== Author
The Git community.
== Table of contents
- <<vscode>>
- <<emacs>>
=== Visual Studio Code (VS Code)
The contrib/vscode/ script creates configuration files that enable
several valuable VS Code features. See contrib/vscode/ for more
information on using the script.
=== Emacs
This is adapted from Linux's suggestion in its CodingStyle document:
- To follow rules of the CodingGuideline, it's useful to put the following in
GIT_CHECKOUT/.dir-locals.el, assuming you use cperl-mode:
;; note the first part is useful for C editing, too
((nil . ((indent-tabs-mode . t)
(tab-width . 8)
(fill-column . 80)))
(cperl-mode . ((cperl-indent-level . 8)
(cperl-extra-newline-before-brace . nil)
(cperl-merge-trailing-else . t))))
For a more complete setup, since Git's codebase uses a coding style
similar to the Linux kernel's style, tips given in Linux's CodingStyle
document can be applied here too.
