Vim indentation for specific file type extensions
- 25 Dec 2017: Post was created (diff)
I am very fond of 2 spaces for indentation in most of my files, but I want to follow the convention with using a width of 4 when coding in Python.
The easiest way I could find how was to add a line in
autocmd FileType python setlocal shiftwidth=4
In my own setup (which may not apply to you), I’ve set the global settings as such:
set shiftwidth=2 set softtabstop=2
