Extract the IDEA Java code formatter to own library?

Hey there,

we want to format our Java code on Git commit. This doesn't work with IDEA alone since we cannot exclude certain file types (and a few team members don't use IDEA).

So since the IDEA Community code is open source we'd like to create a little library "jfmt" that we could call on Git commit.

Could you give me some pointers where to start looking in the big repository to find what I need?

Regards
Stephan

Why not to use eclipse formatter? It can do it.

For a different reason I am interested in this also.

I'm still a bit lost on how to format a bunch of files without starting an entire IDE ... anyone?

I would take a look into com.intellij.psi.formatter.java.AbstractJavaFormatterTest
