[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

Oh, this sort of thing I code as:

local _ = coroutine
local cocreate, coresume, costatus
    = _.create, _.resume, _.status

I used to, but I don't like that it causes diffs to include unrelated
changes (which are my main form of code review).

e.g. say your string.lua file needed the coroutine library: you'd have
make 3 non-functional line edits to keep alignment. consistent.
   Yes, and for me, that's fine.  Because otherwise the code becomes too
unreadble for *me* when it's not aligned.


I don't align across unrelated variables.

local cocreate = coroutine.create
local coresume = coroutine.resume
local costatus = coroutine.status
local smatch = string.match
local sgsub  = string.gsub
local tsort = table.sort
local tmove = table.move
-- etc

Works fine for me. The different alignment might even be helpful.
