I like the idea of
.dir-locals.el. I have my own
.dir-locals.el file in my home directory that should set all the variables for directories/files that I open unless there is
.dir-locals.el closer to the directory I open the file in. However, even though the file is recognized, directory variables for subdirectories are not applied to opened files.
This is my
(("dev/school" . ((indent-tabs-mode . nil) (c-basic-offset . 4))) ("dev/test" . ((indent-tabs-mode . nil) (c-basic-offset . 4))) (c-mode . ((c-file-style . "linux") (c-basic-offset . 8))))
When I open file
~/dev/test/test.c the variable
indent-tabs-mode is set to
(describe-variable 'c-basic-offset) in that file tells me it is set to
(describe-variable 'indent-tabs-mode) in that file says it's value (
t) is just in its default state.
Can I somehow achieve the desired behaviour? What am I doing wrong? How are file paths mapped to subdirectories in
As Jonathan suggested, I also tried:
(;; dev/school subdir ("dev/school" . ;; dev/school specification for all modes (nil . ((indent-tabs-mode . nil) (c-basic-offset . 4)))))
and even what
(("dev/school" (indent-tabs-mode) (c-basic-offset . 4)))
Unfortunately, none of those work either.
