There are a class of text editor settings and conventions that our approach is to be more opinionated on. We’re not saying these options aren’t without merit - most of us have certainly had battles or discussions about them.

We’re designing Gomix with an assumption that if people aren’t confronted with low level choices like this. Ideally, this approach will have a couple benefits to their life:

  • they’ll instead focus on issues around their actual code, or on the problem they’re trying to solve
  • we can help people avoid a deep, dark internet rabbit hole
  • no one should feel like they’re doing it wrong, or that they have to understand and make the “right” choice before coding
  • consistent conventions make browsing other people’s code easier - especially helpful in a remix or collaboration scenario

I certainly see your point New Shoes Dressy up Party Heel Women's Bootie Lace Leopard Platform High Boots 6q6Zwr, thank you.

Since I’m interested in using Python with gomix I’d just like to add that it’s the default for Python to use four spaces, so I’m not sure how well this opinionated stance will hold outside of Javascript and maybe Ruby. It might just be me, but since proper Python code has four spaces I would probably still use those for Python code, even if it means double-tabbing in your editor. Especially if I’m creating a mix for educational purposes.

Someone copying over my example to a proper Python codebase would have to use four spaces anyway, to not go against the grain.

Therefore, if the spacing is fixed it should probably be configured on a per-language basis. Though you basically enter the same rabbit hole again.

Brown Black Wolky Wolky Spirit Spirit Language specific defaults makes sense to me. We’re still discussing internally whether multi language support is something we’ll want to focus on right now though

Hi there, I also would like to use 4 spaces in JavaScript, as I am used to this. I think the project should have a little settings file with indentation setting, preferably per language.
