Automatic indentation for Python
Out of curiosity, why isn’t Python code automatically indented in NPP?
For example, hitting enter after the following line should indent the next line:
if a < b: no indentation here
I’ve noticed a plugin doing just that, apparently available since 2012. Why isn’t this feature implemented natively?
because notepad++ isn’t a python only editor.
And the reason for the plugin architecture is exactly for such cases.
Sorry, I don’t know much about language definitions for NPP, but aren’t indentation rules supposed to be part of them?
