re: 80 Characters per Line Is a Standard Worth Sticking to Even Today VIEW POST

I do a lot of programming with Python and Bash which typically uses 4 spaces. I also work with Ruby, Elixir and Node on a regular basis at 2 spaces.

Never had a problem with 80 characters on the 4 space languages. Maybe PHP is different?

Even on Python code bases with many thousands of lines of code, I very rarely have to think about the 80 character limit, everything just fits naturally.

That's with using very descriptive variable and function names too. I never abbreviate for the sake of line length.
