Indenting Erlang Code Automatically (in Vim)

By Erlang Central | Published: May 30, 2013

In 2007 I wrote the Erlang indentation for Vim. It is not smart enough, so I decided to make it smarter. At the conference I will present the challenges of indenting Erlang code.

Talk objectives: To give the audience some general understanding of automatic indentation in text editors, and a high-level description and interesting corner cases of indenting Erlang code

Target audience: Erlang coders and text editor enthusiasts
