I switched to two spaces 10 years ago because the last 4 companies required it. But after reading this, I'm gonna switch back to tabs. Now to break a 10 year habit.


I have also worked with people who cited spaces as an A11y concern. It's one of the reasons I continue to use tabs.


And before anyone makes a joke about hitting the space bar twice, that's not how it works. I of course had my tab key mapped to 2 spaces. But it's a habit to break in apps that don't have remapping and just having to train my brain to not see it as wrong.

@jina @md just throw a commit hook into your git config to concert spaces to tabs :)
