Overwrite dooms yasnippets


I am working in a company where we have a religion of putting the { in C-Code on the beginning of the next line after an if:

if (true)


instead of

if (false) {

Dooms yasnippets all use the second form. How do I go about changing this?

Thanks for your help!

Do your workspace have .clang-format file? Then this shouldn’t be a problem.

No it doesn’t but I could add one.

So, I found this:


Which is exactly what I need, I think. But it doesn’t work. I put it into my config.el.

I edited the code a bit, now it works fine:

(defun whatacold/style-braces-in-allman (snippet)
  "Style the SNIPPET in allman brace style.

There are roughly 3 basic brace styles:
- Attached: The braces are attached to the end of the last line of the previous block. (Java).
- Broken: The braces are broken from the previous block. (Allman).
- Linux: The braces are attached except for the opening brace of a function, class, or namespace (K&R, Linux).

  (let ((len (length snippet))
        (i 0)
        chars char new-str)
    (while (< i len)
      (setq char (aref snippet i))
      (pcase char
         (push ?\n chars)
         (push char chars))
         (push ?\n chars)
         (push char chars)
         (push ?\n chars))
         (push char chars)))
      (setq i (1+ i)))
    (setq new-str (replace-regexp-in-string "[\n \t]+\n"
                                            (apply #'string (nreverse chars))))
