#2614 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Multiple strings in .editorconfig section names should be wrapped in curly brackets

Reported by: treyhunner's profile treyhunner Owned by: netweb's profile netweb
Milestone: 2.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: trunk
Component: Tools - Code Improvements Keywords: has-patch
Cc: trey@…


The following sections are invalid:

  • *.json,*.yml

They should instead be:

  • {*.json,*.yml}
  • {*.txt,wp-config-sample.php}


This is also a problem in bbpress:

Trey, thanks, I presume still wrapped in square brackets? eg [{*.json,*.yml}] per patch 2614.diff?

Presumably then many of the projects via editorconfig/wiki/Projects-Using-EditorConfig are 'doing it wrong'

A quick look at some of the 'big' projects the only one I saw using braces was Mozilla here

Yes that is correct. Square brackets for the section and curly braces to denote the either-or conditions in the shell glob.

I have only noticed one project "doing it wrong" in this way before. I'll try to comb through some of the other large projects I'm aware of that use EditorConfig.

If you find/found any others that do it incorrectly without braces, please let me know and I'll file an issue with them. Thanks!
