Synfig code was and is written by many hands. To improve readability, maintanance and consistency, we should set our coding style.
In the old wiki, there is a short page about it, written in 2010 by @Genete, but it lacks a lot of info.
Currently, there are many of Code Styles used by many (modern) C++ projects, like Coding Guidelines | Haiku Project, Google C++ Style Guide and Code Style Guidelines | WebKit.
This topic is about building our own code style or following one of the existent ones to be used on new code contributions/commits and, in a future or hypothetical dream, on the entire Synfig code.
I’ll create here some polls about points the code styles mentioned above handles to we choose what fits better to our taste. The “results” will be compiled in http://synfig-docs-dev.readthedocs.io/ .
