C Style

Scripts for editing C-style languages such as D, Java, C++, C, and C#




Place the scripts into a folder called "common" in your modules directory. For example: "textadept/modules/common/cstyle.lua" Note: This script requires my comments code. If it is not installed, you must comment out or delete the relevant lines from the enterkeypressed function.


To use these functions, add them to the init.lua or post_init.lua file for the language you are using. Here is an example for the D language:

local textadept = _G.textadept

-- Commands for the d module.
module('_m.dmd.commands', package.seeall)

require 'common.cstyle'
-- D-specific key commands.
keys.dmd = {
        [keys.LANGUAGE_MODULE_PREFIX] = {
                m = { io.open_file,
                (_USERHOME..'/modules/dmd/init.lua'):iconv('UTF-8', _CHARSET) },
        ['a\n'] = {newline},
        ['s\n'] = {newline_semicolon},
        ['c;'] = {endline_semicolon},
        ['}'] = {match_brace_indent},
        ['\n'] = {enter_key_pressed},
        ['c{'] = {openBraceMagic},
        ['cs\n'] = {closeTagComStr},
        ['cM'] = {selectScope},

This sets up keybindings so that Alt+Enter will move the cursor to the end of the line and add a newline. This is useful if the cursor is inside the parenthesis of an if statement. Shift+Enter now adds a semicolon to the end of the line and adds a newline. Control+; adds a semicolon to the end of the line. The indentation levels of } characters are matched with the beginning { when they are inserted. The enter key will do things like auto-continue comments, indent after { characters, etc. To disable any of these features, just comment out the key command in your language's init.lua.

Added the file “cstyle.lua”.
