I use an indentation sensitive language (imba) and I need to always use tabs.
I'm using doom emacs and I'm also writing a wip major mode for Imba. But I press tab and it adds indentation using tabs (a tab or more) followed by two spaces !!
The two spaces drive me insane, and I tried many things to get rid of them:
- Disable electric-indenent-mode
(setq electric-indent-mode nil)
(setq indent-tabs-mode t)
And I tried and removed a couple of other options
;; (setq-default tab-width 2) ;; (setq-default evil-shift-width 2) ;; (setq-default evil-shift-round nil) ;; (setq-default tab-always-indent 'complete)
Also, I tried enabling editorconfig which is supposed to use the following config
indent_style = tab indent_size = 4
But still, tabs are not working as I wish.
indent-tabs-mode, and also ensure that your mode only ever indents in multiples of
tab-width. E.g. if you have a tab width of 4 and indent by 6 columns, it's necessary that there are 2 spaces. Make sure your mode doesn't do that.
