Less wide Tabs in VIM
To use less space in vim I decided to go with only two spaces for each tab stop. This also improves readability in my eyes. I set the following in my
.vimrc which I found here:
Interesting: Now I need two tabs to have the correct indent for Markdown source code.
set tabstop=4 " The number of spaces count for a TAB. set softtabstop=2 " The number of spaces inserted when typing TAB. If not expandtab, type TAB twice, will get one TAB. set shiftwidth=2 " The number of spaces when auto-indent. set expandtab " Use the spaces only. set smarttab " Insert appropriate spaces in front of line according to shiftwidth, tabstop, softtabstop. set autoindent set smartindent
