FORK FROM SERIKB's REPO AND BUILD ON TOP: https://github.com/serikb/vscode-google-java-format
This is a VS Code extension for running the google-java-format tool as a Java formatter. Serikb extension was working fine, he wrote this as a super simple formatter provider that will just run the google-java-format script from a local installation. I made some configuration to replace spaces with tabs, since i know people that preffer them, including me. Since google-java-format doesn't provide this function, and i'm writing a lot of java lately, i had to make a quick hack.
Serikb: "It should work as a formatter for only sections of files as well."
It provides a formatter for the Java language, meaning it runs google-java-format for you. Install google-java-format from e.g. AUR or Homebrew and set it as your Java formatter like:
Use the setting "google-java-format.executable-path" to set the path to the google-java-format executable. The extension does not look in
When its converting spaces to tabs, it could lead to lines having more than 140 char width
Added spaces to tabs conversion
Added ability to pass extra args via "google-java-format.args"
