Processing Python mode autoformat (Ctrl + T) has been broken for a long time, and it depends on a socket (?), a local network connection that can often break.
I would like someone versed on Eclipse and Processing Tool making to help make something that runs a PEP8 formatter on the IDE code contents…
Let’s break the problem in 2 parts.
- Can someone please help me make a tool that gets the code from the IDE, runs it through a command-line (?) tool that formats it and puts it back in the IDE?
- Can someone help me make the CL tool or equivalent that woulp PEP8fy code on Windows, MacOS and Linux?
(For reference: this is the formatter that comes with the mode: processing.py/autopep8.py at 78a237922c2a928b83f4ad579dbf8d32c0099890 · jdf/processing.py · GitHub and also Autoformatting pains / Tool ideas?)
