I've been Googling and digging through the
org-babel docs, but it's coming out with not a lot.
The thing is, one of things I'm working on is using org-babel to tangle Makefile source. In it, the documentation states, and I understand why it does, that I need to evaluate
(setq org-src-preserve-indentation t), which I have, right now.
Thing is, I don't want to enable this value globally. I can understand that it makes sense for Python, Makefile, or other languages that are white-space sensitive, but I really don't want it enabled elsewhere. Plus, the end result of this is that the final org-file won't work for people who don't enable the value by default, so the resulting org-file is less portable anyway.
I'd prefer it if I could just enable
org-src-preserve-indentation on a per code-block basis (it's extra typing, but I can live with that), but even a buffer-specific setting is acceptable. The thing is, I'm not sure how to do it.
I suspect that it could be done by taking advantage of how
#+HEADER settings can eval Lisp code, but doesn't that mean that every time I tangle the file, or something, the setting is kept on every time? I'd rather not do that, that just makes the file unpredictable to use.
