The correct answer is, was and always has been elastic tabstops

[-] pohart@programming.dev 4 points 2 months ago

Any ides have support for this? I feel like I've been waiting forever.

[-] Euphoma@lemmy.ml 6 points 2 months ago

Looks like there's an emacs package for elastic tab stops.

[-] KairuByte@lemmy.dbzer0.com 5 points 2 months ago

Of-fucking-course there is.

[-] BatmanAoD@programming.dev 2 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

Essentially no. I wish so badly that this had taken off.

Edit: as noted on the website, various plug-ins that attempt support are in fact not correct.

What do you mean? There's a ton of working plugins listed on the website for many editors.

[-] BatmanAoD@programming.dev 2 points 2 months ago

Sorry, my phrasing was sloppy. Most popular IDEs and editors do not have a plug-in or setting that implements elastic tabstops correctly. In particular, there's no implementation for vim, emacs, VSCode, eclipse, or any JetBrains IDEs. (I had forgotten that there's one for Visual Studio and one for Notepad++.)

Wow this site is hard to read, at least on mobile (haven't tried on my PC). The line-height is too small.

I've been hoping someone would try that!
