tabs v spaces may be an even greater conflict.

Here is a pretty good explanation of why tabs are superior: https://www.reddit.com/r/javascript/comments/c8drjo/nobody_t...

I'm a bit worried that both the coworkers, the writer of that comment and everyone else in that thread all somehow don't know to put one line of sed in a githook to fix that problem?

Easily the most trivial objection I've ever seen in the never ending spaces/tab debate.

Many people I know customise their local environment to suit.


It’s not a conflict. A huge portion of the population is just still in denial.

And on a lesser note, The Cult of Vi vs The Church of Emacs

Still ongoing with no end in sight
