A simple plugin for Gedit to force the option spaces-instead-of-tabs off for all Makefiles.
Gedit is a powerful text editor for Gnome. It allows the user to
choose between space and tabulation for indentations, because many people
do not use tabulations any longer. And for most usage, I agree with them
and use Gedit with spaces. However,
make requires tabulations in
Makefiles. That is why I wrote this plugin to automatically switch back to
tabulations on Makefiles.
Copy the contents of the archive into one of the following directories:
- ~/.gnome2/gedit/plugins/ (just for a user)
Run Gedit and activate the plugin in the preferences of Gedit. Also, configure Gedit to uses spaces by default.
