What is this .editorconfig file and how do I use it?

The EditorConfig project defines a simple file format for configuring common text-editor options such as indentation sizes. These configuration files are designed to sit alongside a project’s source code, allowing text editors to use the right options on a file-by-file basis. The EditorConfig project provides plugins for many common text editors, making the format fully cross-platform.

You can download and install EditorConfig support for Visual Studio here.
