Formatting F# code, There and Back Again
In recent years code formatters have done wonders in many languages. They can help a language by making it easier for newcomers on the "how should it look like". And overall, they can avoid pointless arguments in teams. In a perfect world, a formatter is available with the first release of the language. For F# this wasn't the case. In recent years the Fantomas project is rising to empty that void. And given the state of the language and ecosystem, it can be a tough climb.
Join me in this talk to discover what Fantomas is, how it works, and witness the road to adoption.
The project is technically very compelling and touches the F# compiler itself.
And being a maintainer of the project has been very insightful in regards to my open-source journey.
I learned a lot along the way and wish to share this experience with you!
