A wrapper script around clang-format, suitable for linting multiple files and to use for continuous integration.
This is an alternative API for the clang-format command line. It runs over multiple files and directories in parallel. A diff output is produced and a sensible exit code is returned.

run-clang-format.py_ in your project, then run it recursively on directories, or specific files::
./run-clang-format.py -r src include foo.cpp
It's possible to exclude paths from the recursive search::
./run-clang-format.py -r \ --exclude src/thirdparty \ --exclude '*test.cpp' \ src include foo.cpp
These exclude rules can be put in a
.clang-format-ignorefile, which also supports comments.
An example configuration is available in this repo::
$ cat .clang-format-ignore # ignore thirdparty code from clang-format checks src/thirdparty/*

No, and this is what this repository was initially about. However, once working around a few shortcommings of
git clang-format, I opted to try an alternative strategy which expects the whole project to be correctly formatted.
It would make sense to support this feature as well, so that the coding style does not need to be enforced but merely suggested.
