Discussion on: Who Killed The Tab?

I might argue that converting all indentation to spaces with editor settings makes everyone happy in their own way since they can set indentation per project or language.

Well... It doesn't make me happy. Because when I open the files in our project, everything's set to 2-space indents. And it doesn't matter if I change the width of my tabs. The file will still have every layer nested - by 2 spaces.

Then again, I'm old. And continually rather cranky. So maybe it wouldn't make any difference even if the entire world gave in to my evil demands of All Tabs, All The Time.

But I appreciate your feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the article.

Ah well yeah, the 2 spaces setting is annoying. I get that. If we could just get everyone to agree on 3 or 4 spaces... I'd say that's the real issue.
