To avoid unproductive debates on formatting, this project uses clang-format to ensure a consistent style across all source files. Currently, clang-format 3.8 is the version of clang-format we use. The format file can be found here. To install clang-format on Ubuntu, run this:

1 apt-get install clang-format-3.8

To install clang-format on OS X, run this:

1 brew install clang-format

Note that brew might install a later version of clang-format, but it should be mostly compatible with what's run on the Travis servers.

To run clang-format on every source file, run this in the root directory:

1 ./

This should indicate which files need formatting and also show a diff of the requested changes. More specific usage instructions can be found on the official LLVM website.
