Questions tagged [smie]

SMIE (Simple Minded Indentation Engine) is a package that provides a generic navigation and indentation engine. Based on a very simple parser using an “operator precedence grammar”, it lets major modes extend the sexp-based navigation of Lisp to non-Lisp languages as well as provide a simple to use but reliable auto-indentation.
