Visser Fixed Formatter issues and improved API use.
There were some issues with formatting onSave, marking the file dirty after fixing it. This was resolved by removing the part in the FormattingEditProvider. The same provider has also been changed to a RangeFormattingProvider, because our Formatter also supports text selections. This means that the Helper.getSelection() method has been gotten rid of, since that is all handled outside of the formatting functionality now.

Finally, removed the window.activeTextEditor.edit() part from the Formatter, and moved it to a separate functions. Because, what happened was that edits were applied, and then the TextEdits were returned as well. What SHOULD happen, however, is that the TextEdits are returned, so that the FormattingEditProvider API can handle those. We shouldn't handle the edits ourselves.

Calling this extension's "fix" command, however, DOES call window.activeTextEditor.edit(). So this means that both editor.onSave and phpformatter.fix commands work now. Well, at least for me they do.

Last but not least I also added some code documentation.

  • Trigger formatting with custom keybindings or actions.
  • Supports formatting on save.
  • Supports adjustable level (i.e. PSR2) and fixers.
  • Can be configured to support other file extensions than PHP as well, i.e. ".inc" files.
  • Supports different PHP-CS-Fixer installation methods, i.e. Composer vs manual installation.
