show vertical lines to guide indentation

Screencast

Current block only

All blocks

Usage

Require this script

(require 'indent-guide)

and call command “M-x indent-guide-mode”.

If you want to enable indent-guide-mode in all buffers, call function indent-guide-global-mode.

(indent-guide-global-mode)

Configuration

Column lines are propertized with “indent-guide-face”. So you may configure this face to make liens more pretty in your colorscheme.

(set-face-background 'indent-guide-face "dimgray")

If you want indent-guide to show guide lines only in idle-time, you can set delay.

(setq indent-guide-delay 0.1)

To show not only one guide line but all guide lines recursively, set “indent-guide-recursive” non-nil.

(setq indent-guide-recursive t)

You may also change the character for guides.

(setq indent-guide-char ":")

Comparison with highlight-indentation

  • look and feel
  • better indentation handling for LISP-like languages
    (foo                  (foo
    |(foobar baz          |(foobar baz
    ||       (foobar      |   |   |(foobar
    ||       |(qux))))    |   |   | (qux))))
    
       indent-guide     highlight-indentation
        
  • indent-guide works fine even when the code is indented with TABs
  • indent-guide is slower than highlight-indentation especially in very large blocks

Known Limitations

does not work perfectly with following modes (commands) :

  • company-mode, auto-complete-mode, popup.el (tooltip is sometimes not rendered perfectly)
  • commands in pager.el
