The current KDevelop code base is very inconsistent when it comes to the coding style. So please adhere to the file's coding style you are working on / patching.

For new files / projects / plugins, please use the Policies/Kdelibs_Coding_Style guidelines. Here are a few special additions:

Class Initialization

// wrong foo.h
class Foo : public Bar {
  Foo(int i, int j) : Bar(i), bla(j) {}
  int bla;

// correct foo.h
class Foo: public Bar
  Foo(int i, int j);
  int m_bla;
// foo.cpp
Foo::Foo(int i, int j)
: Bar(i)
, m_bla(j)

Using Namespaces

Never add a "using namespace ..." to a header. Do use that though in every .cpp file , esp. for the KDevelop namespace.
