Python indentation

In python, there are two ways of indentation: tab or spaces(4 spaces).

However, I use WingIde, Visual Studio Code and Atom editor alternatively (do not ask why) depends on my purposes. And they are not consistently on how to indentify Python file.

  2. do not mess with format if it works
  3. Be careful
