Apple .clang-format

A .clang-format file as similar as you can get to Apple's code style.


  1. Download the ClangFormat-Xcode plugin
  2. Download this .clang-format file and put it in the root folder of your project.
  3. Go to Edit > Clang Format, choose File. It will choose the .clang-format file if it's in the root folder of the project.


Please do a pull-request if you spot any attributes that should be altered to make the format more similar to Apple's style. I've added a preview in this README to make it easy to just copy the text if you don't want the hassle of cloning repo or just for quick inspection. Please update the README preview below if you make a pull request that alters the format file.
