Coding Style

Given the focus of Locutus I think we should re-invent as few wheels as possible and make use of sensible tools and standards that are other people have already invested a great deal of time in to get right.

In this light, I’ve decided to adopt Felix’ Node.js Style Guide for coding standards, instead of running our own.

It saves us time maintaining and it becomes easier for people to contribute because they don’t have to memorize where Locutus diverges.

For the big parts our codebase is already compatible with it, so we won’t get any weird space + tab indentations as a result, as we start adding code that follows the guide.

Going forward, contributions should comply with these conventions before being merged in.

Best wishes,
