As a diehard “spaces” kind of person I decided to switch to tabs for accessibility reasons, but it's hard sometimes as you can't just flip a switch and change an entire repository instantly without taking precautions.
Not only that, but after changing the defaults on your code editor, you may have to continue working on other repositories with spaces until those get converted too. Very messy situation.
Just a reminder that tabs are far better for accessibility (#a11y) than spaces.
Not only do they allow people to adjust the indent size to improve readibility, but they are far more compatible with screenreaders and refreshable braille displays.
Modern #coding tools really make all of the other, more trivial differences pretty much moot. So please consider using tabs to ensure that everyone can read and contribute to your project!
I made up my mind in the "tabs vs spaces" debate decades ago.
Yesterday a single novel-to-me argument changed my mind.
