Oupss i have made a mistake. The plugin website is

http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/JalopyForIdea

This plugins Integrates the Jalopy source code formatter into IDEA.

Jalopy website - http://jalopy.sf.net
Plugin website - http://maven.apache.org/reference/plugins/jalopy

I built this plugin for my own use, hoping that it could be useful
for someone else, i put it public.

Your announcement would make more sense in the "plugins" newsgroup,
as opposed to "openapi".

Good to see another useful plugin :)

Wow. I was just telling a coworker yesterday how I missed this plugin from my previous IDE and wished there was one for IDEA. And low and behold it shows up the next day. Talk about your happy coincidences. :)

You might want to inquire about adding this plugin to the sourceforge page along with the other jalopy plugins. I understand that there is someone out there looking to start up the opensource version of jalopy again so someone should be able to help you add it.

A couple suggestions:

  • The convention in other jalopy plugins seems to be to have the menu command as 'Format "<filename>"' rather then 'Jalopy "<filename>"'. I admit it probably is less confusing to use 'Jalopy', but I wanted to be sure you were aware of the convention .

  • I can only seem to format with jalopy by right clicking the file in the Project view. It would be nice if you could also call it from other locations su as by right clicking in the Java file itself, rightclicking in the Commander, or by selecing in the Tools/Code/Edit menus.

  • I encountered an error when I clicked on 'Javadoc' in the settings panel. It gives me an error message 'Invalid text for "Top" fragment specified' and the message won't go away. every time I click ok, the error pops up again. I have to kill IDEA to get it to go away. I thought I had javadoc formatting turned off in my Jalopy settings so I don't know why this is erroring.

Ronald, my apologies if this seems like a stupid question but having not used Jalopy before I took a quick look at the website and to me it seemed like pretty much offering the same functionality already offered by IDEA in the IDE code style settings. What does Jalopy offer that standard IDEA doesn't that made you miss it so much?

I will send a mail to the Jalopy's team, but Iâ??m not sure they will
be interested in ( Itâ??s a very simple integration )

A couple suggestions:

  • The convention 'Format "<filename>"' rather than 'Jalopy

"<filename>"'. I


I choose 'Jalopy' to be less confusing.

  • I can only seem to format with jalopy by right clicking the file in

the Project view. It would be nice if you could also call it from other
locations su as by right clicking in the Java file itself, rightclicking
in the Commander, or by selecing in the Tools/Code/Edit menus.


You can invoke jalopy from the editor in 2 ways (for the moment) :
- with the keystroke "control shift P" (same keystroke used in JBuilder)
- from the menu bar : 'Tools' -> 'Reformat with Jalopy'

I will add the rigth-click in the commander view as soon as (1) i have
time,
and (2) found the way to do this :)

  • I encountered an error when I clicked on 'Javadoc' in the settings

panel. It gives me an error message 'Invalid text for "Top" fragment
specified' and the message won't go away. every time I click ok, the
error pops up again. I have to kill IDEA to get it to go away. I
thought I had javadoc formatting turned off in my Jalopy settings so I
don't know why this is erroring.


Iâ??m sorry for the inconvenience.

I did not succeed in repeating the Bug. I use IDEA 4.02, and you ?

I don't know for Ronald, but for us, the main reasons are:
- Jalopy can be launch through command dos. All our build script, in
fact Maven, uses this feature (cvs actions, release, etcâ?¦).
- Itâ??s easy to share the Jalopyâ??s configuration file between the team.
With the maven automatic-download mechanism, we donâ??t even need to
install it manually.

But there are also some minor reasons:
- We can configure Jalopy to add copyright notice.
- Jalopy can add automatically some javadocs (with TODOâ??s)
- Jalopy reformat javadocs.
- IDEA is not (yet) the official IDE in our company :)

yes there is a lot of overlap in functionality between Jalopy and the Idea Formatter. In a ways jalopy is like a mix of the Idea code styles, the tabifier plugin, and the rearranger plugin. There are many things that jalopy does that idea doesn't (and also some things that idea does that jalopy doesn't.)

One of the things you can do with jalopy you can't do with the idea formatter is to integrate it into a nightly build. And Like someone said the settings are easily transportable and shared among developers. There even easily shared between multiple IDE's on the same machine.

I'm using 4.02 as well. My settings were created in another ide a long time ago. it was using the same version of jalopy as the idea plugin.

perhaps the other didn't save properly or the idea plugin is reading the settings wrong.
