Revived extension to autoformat with Rubocop in VSCode

There is a nice VSCode extension called vscode-ruby-rubocop that you can use to automatically format a Ruby file using Format document (Shift+Alt+F). Unfortunately, that extension seems to be unmaintained for over 6 months now... ๐Ÿ˜ข

But there is some good news. ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ I have forked the repository and fixed a few things:

  • Changed the Rubocop argument --auto-correct to --autocorrect because --auto-correct is deprecated.
  • Added configuration option ruby.rubocop.useServer. When you enable this option, Rubocop is started with --server which dramatically increases formatting speed. Keep in mind, this option only works with Rubocop >= 1.31.

You can find the revived extension at GitHub and in the VSCode marketplace.
