Generic Code Formatting with EditorConfig example

I love code. I take care of my code and I like my code to be formatted nicely. No matter if I’m on Eclipse, Netbeans or IntelliJ, I want my code to be formatted the same.

Nowadays we have EditorConfig. In the source code we can place a file .editorconfig with formatting instructions. These instructions can be read by many Tools like Eclipse, Netbeans, IntelliJ and VisualStudio. If we create an .editorconfig file with formatting instructions, these rules are automatically applied.

Happy coding and formatting!
