dfmt is a D source code formatting tool.
I've been using clang-format lately for my C++ code and it's
really blown me away how good it is. It's not opinionated about
how things should be, it just does whatever style you've set it
to. The Visual Studio plugin they have just gives me a keyboard
shortcut and when I hit it, it formats the current line or
I waste almost no time formatting code now. I just type and hit
the format key and move on. If it formatted something differently
than how I would have done it I just let it be because how it
formatted is usually almost as good anyway. I feel like it's been
as big of boon to my coding speed as learning vim was.
From what I understand they implemented a LaTeX style weighted
line breaker which would explain why it works so much better than
a typical code formatter. It's very smart about how it does line
breaks. This seems to make all the difference.
This is all to say I hope dfmt becomes as awesome as clang-format
is at some point. Hopefully I can find some time to contribute.
