Go (Golang) programming language comes with a tool called
go fmt. Its a code formatter, which formats your code automagically (alignments, alphabetic sorting, tabbing, spacing, idioms...). Its really awesome.
So I've found this little autocommand which utilizes it in Vim, each time buffer is saved to file.
au FileType go au BufWritePre <buffer> Fmt
Fmt is a function that comes with Go vim plugin.
This is really great, but it has 1 problem. Each time formatter writes to buffer, it creates a jump in undo/redo history. Which becomes very painful when trying to undo/redo changes, since every 2nd change is formatter (making cursor jump to line 1).
So I am wondering, is there any way to discard latest change from undo/redo history after triggering
Ok, so far I have:
au FileType go au BufWritePre <buffer> undojoin | Fmt
But its not all good yet. According to
:h undojoin, undojoin is not allowed after undo. And sure enough, it fires an error when I try to
:w after an undo.
So how do I achieve something like this pseudo-code:
if lastAction != undo then au FileType go au BufWritePre <buffer> undojoin | Fmt end
If I get this last bit figured out, I think I have a solution.
