Render spaces as tabs?


Tabs are cool because a dev can configure the tab size for their liking. But they don’t have this flexibility with spaces.

It’d be neat of there was a way to configure how leading spaces are rendered. For example, imagine telling Atom “render every 2 spaces as a tab”.

This would settle the spaces vs tab war, because then it wouldn’t matter which spacing a project uses, the Atom-using dev would simply just configure the tab or space rendering to their liking.

Does such a pugin exist?

Looks like the tabs-to-spaces plugin converts one type of spacing to the other, but I do not wish to convert, I only wish to render them differently, but not actually change the text content of the file.
