Emacs command line to indent Javascript code and convert tabs to spaces

by Joe Kuan

Part of my project checkin script is to automatically apply coding style and converting tabs to spaces. Here is the command line:

emacs -batch file.js --eval "(custom-set-variables '(js-indent-level 2))"  -f mark-whole-buffer -f indent-region -f mark-whole-buffer -f untabify -f save-buffer -kill

Change the value of js-indent-level to any religion of white spaces.
