ktlint_official code style combines the best elements from the Kotlin Coding conventions and Android's Kotlin styleguide. This code style also provides additional formatting on topics which are not (explicitly) mentioned in those conventions and style guide.
Be aware that this code style in some cases formats code in a way which is not accepted by the default code formatters in IntelliJ IDEA and Android Studio. The formatters of those editors produce nicely formatted code in the vast majority of cases. But in a number of edge cases, the formatting contains bugs which are waiting to be fixed for several years. The new code style formats code in a way which is compatible with the default formatting of the editors whenever possible. When using this codestyle, it is best to disable (e.g. not use) code formatting in the editor.
