Usage

No additional configuration is required other than creating .editorconfig files. The plugin applies the editorconfig settings for a file when opened in a supported editor (currently Text, Java, XML and Ant editors).

How It Works

Whenever an Eclipse editor is opened or gains focus, the .editorconfig settings are obtained for that editor's file and applied globally to all supported editor types. How the editorconfig is obtained for any file is described in the EditorConfig docs:

When opening a file, EditorConfig plugins look for a file named
.editorconfig in the directory of the opened file and in every parent
directory. A search for .editorconfig files will stop if the root filepath
is reached or an EditorConfig file with root=true is found.
