  • Use styler for code formatting

Upgrade Notes

Starting in this release, we now use Styler to format our codebase. This means there will be a large amount of changes. In order to minimise merge or rebase conflicts when upgrading, we recommend you swap out Recode with Styler first:

# in mix.exs

# remove this:
{:recode, "~> 0.6", only: [:dev, :test]},

# and replace it with this:
{:styler, "~> 0.11", only: [:dev, :test], runtime: false},

# in .formatter.exs

# replace:
plugins: [Phoenix.LiveView.HTMLFormatter, Recode.FormatterPlugin]

# with:
plugins: [Phoenix.LiveView.HTMLFormatter, Styler]

Then, replace the content of .credo.exs with the one in this repo.

Finally, run the formatter for Styler to take care of things:

mix deps.get && mix format

Another change we recommend you make before upgrading, especially if you've made changes to your landing page, is to rename PetalProWeb.Components.LandingPage to PetalProWeb.LandingPageComponents, make sure you also rename the file from landing_page.ex to landing_page_components.ex.

Given the amount of changes in this release, we recommend you backup your branch, then use merge instead of rebase to bring your branch up to date.
