Code style: the choice of IDE or the question about editorconfig

In the last meeting there was a question concerning IDE: Which editor should we all use? I personally think that everyone should use the editor he/she prefers.

But to keep the style rules of the code - which we certainly have to define together - consistent, a file should be configured that can be read by the editor.

In Angular projects created with Angular-Cli, there is an editorconfig file for this purpose. Here we have to define the rules clearly. A corresponding overview can be found at https://editorconfig.org.

This could be a new sprint backlog for the next sprint phase?

Great idea :+1:

Editorconfig is a widely used standard with plugins for all major IDEs.

We could also think about using code style checking tools, which would then be part of CI.
