It would be great if the SonarQube code viewer could format code according to
We have the following configuration:
root = true
charset = utf-8
indent_style = tab
indent_size = 4
trim_trailing_whitespace = true
insert_final_newline = true
but the indent is represent as 8 spaces.
I’m curious: why is it important that the code viewer in SonarQube uses the same indentation strategy as in the editor?
To be honest, I don’t need exactly the same indentation strategy. Some people prefer spaces, other prefer tabs. I’m fine with it There is one common thing for both approach. The size is usually between 2 and 4. I prefer 4, it is not too big and not too small. SonarQube displays tabs as 8 spaces, and it sometimes makes code difficult to read (people have to scroll). That is the reason why I proposed to use the same formatting - it would be the best. I know it is probably quit difficult to implement (not worth the effort). If you could just make the tabs smaller - I would be also satisfied
Do’h, looks like there is an old ticket about this problem! => SONAR-11552
A fix is already on its way thanks to @Jonathan_Weibel!
