Eclipse PDT: How do I get it to format my PHP arrays like VIM?


Question

I've been struggling to get Eclipse to format my php arrays like vim indentation does.

What eclipse does (press CTRL+SHIFT+F)

<?php
$array = array(
'key1' => 'value1',
'key2' => array(
'child_key1' => 'child_value1',
'child_key2' => 'child_value2',
),
);

What vim does (press keys:gg=G)

<?php
$array = array(
  'key1' => 'value1',
  'key2' => array(
    'child_key1' => 'child_value1',
    'child_key2' => 'child_value2',
    ),  
  );  

I've tried looking in Preferences>PHP>Code Style>Formatter and Preferences>PHP>Editor>Templates but haven't found anything.
Thanks in advance.

With Eclipse PDT Luna 4.4: Choose menu Window \ Preferences. Choose PHP \ Code Style \ Formatter.
Create new Active profile then press button Edit.

In tab Indentation, choose Default indentation for array initializers You should choose value 1 (however, default value is 2).

Check out this project. Put the jar file in your eclipse/dropins folder, and then you can go to preferences/php/code style/formatter. It has a cool "Align => column position in array" option under the "Miscellaneous" section (click the arrow on the options tab to expand) that does something similar to what you want. Use Ctrl-Shift-F to format an entire file, or right-click a selection and checkout the "Source->Format..." options.
