In this talk, I'd like to share the vision of where Fantomas is going. The project had a rough start and has slowly become more stable over the years to the point where it can be used in every developer's daily workflow. Well, not entirely... one small team of indomitable devs still holds out against the formatter. Not because of willingness, no because of a terribly complex codebase. Yes, I'm talking about the F# compiler itself. I'd like to highlight what challenges lie ahead in formatting the compiler.
At the beginning of the talk, I illustrate how you can set up Fantomas in a project and I explain why you would do it in the first place. This first part is pretty universal for the entire F# community. However, when trying it out for the compiler, some roadblocks pop up. These will be addressed in the next major version and I want people to get excited about this.
The talk would be a great opportunity for the maintainers to share some perspective with end-users.
