Problems with golang indentation?
« on: October 22, 2021, 10:33:17 pm »
Hi Everyone, I’m a Slickedit novice & a registered Pro user for a handful of years now. I’m using Mac OS + emacs keyboard emulation.

For grins I’m trying v26 on a golang project that I’ve been working on. Set up the workspace & project and have triple checked the obvious language config settings in Google Go > Editing/Formatting, but indentation just doesn’t seem to be working for me. Indentation is working correctly in a C++ project, btw.

For example, this is what the editor is generating when I’m writing go code. Pressing tab doesn’t indent, either.

func testFunc(cfg initConfig) error {
if cfg.a != “” {
return errors.New(“hello world”)
}
}

What am I missing?

Smart indenting for Go is definitely not working as well as it should. We will look into this.

What platform(s) do you need? Had to build new installers to make this much better.

Hi Clark, thank you for working on this. I’m currently using Intel Mac OS.
