The Gif v Jif war but with brackets. The right answer is Gif just as the right bracket style is {
}

    I do it like this - with indented foo/bar, devRant just doesn't show it.

    if (cond)
    foo();
    else
    bar();

    What the fuck is a bracket

    I used the second example for a long time. But once I got used to the first, I fell in love and kept it.

    ...still refactoring old style code when I see it...

    @Python it’s something that lets you write all your code on one line.

    Scripting languages:

    if (a === b) {
    }

    Compiled:

    if (a == b)
    {
    }

    Reason: Counting is easier if they are lined up.

    And who cares about a few misplaced curly brackets or any messed up scope in any script kitty language. Yeah... (Even if, scripting > compile...gotta rant on this one!)

    @tamusjroyce How do you get the devRant editor to not putting blank lines between your source lines? I am fighting with this for ages!

    I am jealous of my vertical space.
    Homicidally jealous.

    Also, you don't say Jraphics, so you don't say Jif.

    Dammit.

    @halfflat Invalid argument exception: Acronyms are pronounced as their own word, not based on the pronunciation of their origins.

    @devios1 While you are entirely correct, it's not in the spirit of ranty assertion.

    @halfflat I honestly don't care how you pronounce it. I'm just sick of hearing that argument.

    There doesn't need to be a correct way. They can both be fine.

    But obviously anyone who puts opening brackets on their own line is a monster.

    Ah! In the Android App it works! Why not in a browser? 😫
