F# Formatting Build Status

Join the chat at https://gitter.im/tpetricek/FSharp.Formatting

The F# Formatting libraries (FSharp.CodeFormat.dll and FSharp.Markdown.dll) include an F# implementation of a Markdown parser and an F# code formatter that can be used to tokenize F# code and obtain information about tokens including tool-tips (as in Visual Studio and MonoDevelop) with type information. The library also comes with a sample that implements literate programming for F#.


The documentation for this library is automatically generated (using the literate programming tools based on the library) from *.fsx and *.md files in the docs folder. If you find a typo, please submit a pull request!

  • F# Formatting: Documentation tools provides more information about the library, how to contribute, etc. It also includes links to tutorials showing how to use the Markdown parser and F# code formatter.

  • F# Formatting: Literate programming documents the most interesting part of the package - script that can be used to generate documentation for F# projects from commented F# script files and Markdown documents.

Who Uses F# Formatting?

The library is used by a number of F# projects. Most prominently, the F# snippets web site uses it to format snippets shared by the F# community. The following sample scripts use the library to generate documentation and might be a useful inspiration:

  • The generate.fsx script in FSharp.ProjectScaffold shows a recommended way for adding F# Formatting docs to your project.
