Coding Conventions

For C++ code, we follow [ITK Coding Style Guide] 1. For python code, we follow the [PEP 8 - Style Guide for Python Code] 2. Highlights and additional ChestImagingPlatform-specifc guidelines for C++ code are as follows

  • Avoid white space immediately inside brackets, braces and parentheses
  • Avoid white space immediately before a comma, semicolon, or colon
  • Don't use spaces around the = sign when used to indicate a keyword argument or a default parameter value
  • Use '//' for each line of a comment block, followed by a space, followed by a capitalized letter if beginning a sentence or phrase. This pertains to comments not meant to appear in the documentation.
  • Follow Doxygen style comments as per recommendations in the [ITK Coding Style Guide] 1 where appropriate
  • Use one space immediately before and after: +, -, <<, >>, &&, ||, +=, *=, -=, =, ==, <, >, =
  • No white space should be used for operators * and /
