Code Style Guidelines

Contributers are recommended to follow the Android Code Style Guidelines with exception for line length that I try to hold to 80 columns where possible.

In short that is;

  • Indentation: tabs, no spaces
  • Line length: 80 columns
  • Braces: Opening braces don't go on their own line.
  • Acronyms are words: Treat acronyms as words in names, yielding XmlHttpRequest, getUrl(), etc.
  • Consistency: Look at what's around you!

Have fun and remember we do this in our spare time so don't be too serious :)
