html – Code indent spacing standardization


Used Sublime Text for the front-end, I already had to open some old code and I had a problem with indentation. I saw that it was only to modify the tab size.

I would like to know if there is a Tab Size pattern for building the HTML of a website. I currently use Tab Size 4.


There are several patterns. The most common is the 4-space indentation.

I recommend the Google HTML/CSS Style Guide as the default for HTML and CSS.


Indent by 2 spaces at a time. Don't use tabs or mix tabs and spaces for indentation:

.example {
  color: blue;
