This module beautifies and formats Nginx configuration files like so:
  • all lines are indented in uniform manner, with 4 spaces per level
  • neighbouring empty lines are collapsed to at most two empty lines
  • curly braces placement follows Java convention
  • whitespaces are collapsed, except in comments an quotation marks
Need to format quickly?
