Elastic tabs for programming. (HT: Oluseyi) Since I’ve become enamored of proportional fonts for coding I have wished there were real tab stops in BBEdit and Xcode. There is a problem sharing code with others though.
I mentioned last week my move to using proportional programming fonts when I found out they worked with Xcode. I actually started with BBEdit and my Python programming since I had a few small projects I was working on. I have to say after a week using Georgia instead of Inconsolata I’m converted.
