Generally Tomboy follows the Mono Coding Guidelines, outlined here:


  • Variable, member, and argument names should use "C style" naming with underlines, as in "white_cat" and "my_argument"

  • The opening brace for classes and properties should always be on a new line

Editor Information


  • Edit -> Preferences -> Editor

    • Width: 8
    • Type: Tabs


  • Edit -> Preferences -> Text Editor

    • Tab indent size: 8
    • un-Check 'Convert tabs to spaces'


Place these commands in your vimrc

  • set tabstop=8 " use 8 spaces for tabs
  • set sw=8 " use 8 spaces when doing smart indents (shiftwidth)
