Nice work!

I played a bit with improving it but didn’t get to where I wanted, so let me instead explain what I wanted to change.

The candidate_chars can be an array of regexps, for example:

  regexps = [ /,/, /\}/, /<-/, /\s[-+\/*|]?(=)\s/, /\s(=>)\s/ ]

We then use the offset of capture 1 or offset of the entire match, if no such capture exists:

  text.split("\n").map do |line|
    if m = ptrn.match(line)
      m.offset(m.size > 1 ? 1 : 0)[0]

In the above, we should use something like ’line[0..i].jlength’ (with i being the offset) for non-ASCII.

We should also collect all matches for each line, and then analyze this result, as we may need to skip the n first matches.

The alignment could be done similarly to above, i.e. apply the regexp against the line, then string post/pre match from leading/trailing whitespace, likewise trim the full match, and now align that.

Whether or not we should insert spaces before/after the match: The best I can come up with is to look at how much space is already to the left/right of the match. We may need to make this an explicit setting, or perhaps we can always insert space before the match *unless* no space was already there (ATM comma is the only case I can think of, where we insert the space after the character).
