I author web apps with the
web-mode in GNU Emacs, and I use 2 spaces for indentation.
After I examined the
web-mode source, I found out that the mode defaults to the
standard-indent variable, which in turn defaults to
4; and if
standard-indent is unset,
web-mode defaults to
2. I'm not sure if I got the terminology correct, and I guess some older versions of Emacs didn't set the variable, so I got 2-space indent out of the box.
(defcustom web-mode-css-indent-offset (if (and (boundp 'standard-indent) standard-indent) standard-indent 2) "CSS indentation level." :type 'integer :safe #'integerp :group 'web-mode)
Obviously, the custom variables' defaults are set during load.
How can I set
web-mode loads? Given the way
web-mode initializes its costomization variables, I think it has to be done while the mode is being loaded into Emacs, and not when I enter the major mode. How do I do that?
