Attributes

  • Each attribute is on its own line.
  • The four attributes name, type, label and description should be written in this order and at the top of the element definition.

Closing Elements

Elements should be closed with the closing tag on a new line.

Exception

When the element only has few attributes, then the whole element can stay on the same line. A max line length of 100 characters is recommended for good reading.
