Use this page to configure code style options for YAML files. When you change these settings, the Preview pane shows how this will affect your code.
Tabs and Indents
|Use tab character|
An indentation consists of two parts. One part results from nesting code blocks, and the other part is determined by alignment.
|Tab size||In this field, specify the number of spaces that fits in a tab.|
|Indent||In this field, specify the number of spaces to be inserted for each indent level.|
In this field, specify the number of spaces to be inserted between the elements of an array, in expressions, method declarations, and method calls.
|Keep indents on empty lines||If this checkbox is selected, CLion retains indents on empty lines as if they contained some code. If the checkbox is cleared, CLion deletes the tab characters and spaces on empty lines.|
|Indent sequence value||If selected, YAML sequence values are indented relative to the parent key item.|
Wrapping and bracesIn this tab, customize the exceptions, brace placement and alignment options that CLion will apply to various code constructs on reformatting the source code. Check the results in the Preview pane.
|Visual guides||In this field, specify multiple right margins. You can leave a default value or enter the number of spaces for your margin. If you want to specify several margins, enter numbers separated by comma.|
Keep when reformatting
Use the checkboxes to configure exceptions that CLion will make when reformatting the source code. For example, by default, the Line breaks checkbox is selected.
If your code contains lines that are shorter than a standard convention, you can convert them by disabling the Line breaks checkbox before reformatting.
|Align values in maps|
Use this list to specify how CLion should align key-value pairs. The available options are:
