vim and spaces/tabs

vim is my favorite cli text editor. It doesn’t require much configuration, but if you edit code and use spaces in place of tabs, you probably want to add a line to your ~/.vimrc:

set tabstop=2 softtabstop=2 expandtab shiftwidth=2 smarttab

Of course, choose the number of spaces that suits your needs. 🙂
