Title says it all. It would be nice to be able to configure the tab size (4spaces, vs 2spaces) depending on if I am working in JS, or CSS, or Ruby, etc.
Syntax-based tab length
Per syntax tab length settings and conversions
Of Markdown, remote editing, and soft-wrapping
Would really love to see this happen!
Python web-dev is basically impossible without this!
Must have feature!
As said above, this is a must feature. Supporting http://editorconfig.org/ would automatically fix this.
This needs to be done!
Who wants to take on this task and write a package?
One of the nice things about Sublime Text that I’m missing here is that it will try to automatically determine the tab size per-file. Additionally, you can set tab size per language, per project, and globally. Being reduced to a single global setting is slightly annoying.
This was the first problem I ran into. 2 spaces for JS, 4 for python.
+1 must have. I’m really missing per-language settings.
I just published a first go at automatic indentation detection: https://atom.io/packages/auto-detect-indentation
This sets per file tabLength/softTab settings for each file that’s opened. If it can’t detect the tab type, it falls back to the atom default.
+1! Would love this. @jtokoph’s plugin is a step in the good direction but it would be great if you could “force” tab settings based on the language you’re editing.
I’ve had luck with the EditorConfig plugin: http://editorconfig.org
Very cool concept.
Anyone still looking at this topic, there seems to be a nice solution here: https://atom.io/packages/syntax-settings
But personally, I just use the init file:
#example init.coffee path = require 'path' atom.workspaceView.eachEditorView (editorView) -> editor = editorView.getEditor() filepath = editor.getPath() # set Tab Length for JS sources if path.extname(filepath) is '.js' editor.setTabLength(4) ```
And this kind of hackability is the reason why I Atom. Thank you for this simple solution.
Note that this feature has been implemented in Atom core: https://github.com/atom/atom/pull/3718
It should be released in the next version.
Nice to read that.
Indeed it is a must have feature.
Finally, there is a new release!
I don’t know how can I set this up in config though.
Following pull request #3718, I added this into my config.cson
'.source.gfm': 'softWrap': true
The config got changed automatically though, to:
'.gfm.source': 'softWrap': true
Any idea on how to get scoped settings to work?
