Today, I wrote a small tool to make your eZ80 programs prettier entirely in the broswer
- adjusts your indentation so it stays with the stack, assuming you are using push/pop. (I'm not sure if I can check other methods, like directly manipulating the stack pointer, without a bunch of extra code)
- formats your comments to increase readability.
- is entirely customizable, so if you don't like something you can fork the project and change it.
- probably won't mess with the functional aspects of your code. (if it does, file a bug report/post in the thread)
- tells you approximately how many changes were made (I like stats)
- probably will have more things going for it in the future
I wrote it as a tool so I could make my code nicer-looking without too much effort. I'm not at the point where I'm writing "smart-person" assembly yet, but I figure I'll get there soon enough. If you put any code in and it comes out functionally different/breaks, please create a bug, giving me the relevant code before/after prettification. I understand that different compilers have different directives/formatting requirements and stuff, so I might have to provide different options for different compilers. I also understand that this is probably useless with good programming practices.
The default settings used are simply my personal preferences (i.e. use 2 spaces instead of a tab, 2 more spaces before a comment, etc), but (as I said above) this is all changeable
, you can find documentation on the individual options here (https://github.com/Legend-of-iPhoenix/eZ80-prettify#customizing-ez80-prettify). It was designed and written for myself, but if there's something you don't like, you can change it. If there's something that I'm missing that you think should be added as a default option, please tell me about it!

- Allow comments in the inputted code to disable formatting for sections/lines/blocks of code.
- More customization features.
- Even more customization features.
- Document the features I added.
- Improve the website (allow customizing features in the browser, so you don't have to fork or open the JS console)
