For me, tabs when doing OOP and spaces when doing HTML or JS (mainly Vue templates).

I use 4 spaces for everything I do because I don’t use languages like Python which are fussy when it comes to that.

Equaling tabs to 4 is like equaling pi to 3, it’s just not right. Tabs is 8.

Side note: In my school, they make us equal pi to 4 and g (gravity on earth) to 10… :man_facepalming:

Gravity to 10 I can understand. Pi to 4??? It’s 3.14… It doesn’t even round to 4…

Eight space tabs are monstrous and should be declared illegal for being longer than necessary.
