What I have:
I have a customised code format (.xml) file that my team wants to use in our project. This file includes predefined coding styles and conventions for java file.
What I want to do:
Now I have to add this formatter as a default code format, so that when click the shortcut of auto code format, the entire file will be formatted according to the the conventions defined in the formatter.
After a long 2days effort I managed the steps to integrate Eclipse Code Formatter in Android Studio
Here I am sharing step by step procedures to integrate Eclipse Code Formatter in Android Studio:
Step 1: Go to the Plugins Section of Android Studio.
The easiest way is Click Shift twice and type Plugins. Now go to the plugins menu.
Step 2: Click on Browse Repositories
Step 3: Type Eclipse Code Formatter in the search box. Select it and Click Install button in the right section
Step 4: After successful installation you can see a blue Eclipse Icon in the top pen
Step 5: Now go to Settings >> Other Settings >> Eclipse Code formatter
Click the Browse button.
Step 6: Then select the Code Format XML file
Any time you click the code formatting command your full code will be formatted according to the code formatter.
Code formatting shortcut:
Ctrl + Alt + L
Ctrl + Start + Alt + L
Option + Command + L
