digitalmars.D.ide - Turning off syntactic indentation in emacs d-mode

Hi,

So d-mode on emacs seems to have strange indentation issues, some 
of which seems to be documented here 
https://github.com/Emacs-D-Mode-Maintainers/Emacs-D-Mode/issues/19

This is almost a non-issue if you turn off syntactic-indentation 
in the D menu bar. How can I set this to be off by default? At 
the moment I have to keep turning it off for every frame/buffer 
it seems.

Cheers,
Farhan

If you still have this issue, you could try adding the following hook to your Emacs init file: (add-hook 'd-mode-hook (function (lambda () (setq c-syntactic-indentation nil)))) This seems to do the trick for me (although, obviously, some automatic indentation features no longer work, such as indentation of the first line after an '{' and de-indentation of '}').
