Python's style guide (PEP 8: Indentation) suggests two alternatives for indenting the close paren for a multi-line function call.

some_function(
    first_long_argument,
    second_long_argument,
    )

or

some_function(
    first_long_argument,
    second_long_argument,
)

I'm getting the second style (with Emacs 24.5.1) with M-x indent-region but would like to know how to customize my .emacs configuration to get the first. I would like the first indentation to also result from tabbing the line with ')', as right now it remains unindented.

  • Please re-read the question and make sure that you have the "first" and "second" straight. Right now it looks like you typed "second" meaning "first" in some places. – Constantine Dec 17 '15 at 23:08
  • @Constantine Thanks, I straightened myself out. – Ian Dec 17 '15 at 23:53

With python-mode.el, that would be py-closing-list-dedents-bos. Sorry, can't answer that WRT built-in python.el
