@bishboria, @vincentisambart: went back and forth on this earlier and decided to strip out any/all customizations to do with tabbing, spacing, etc. This is a touchy subject for many VIM users, hence opted out for the VIM defaults, to be fair to everyone.
We'll add some extra logic + language to the challenge create page to get the creators of challenges to take this into account.
@bishboria: thanks for tip, will update.
@bishboria: the config above have been life for a few days now! unless something is not picking up the differences...?
that needs 2 additional keys, the \ key and C key to specify lowercase for back search ? command to search o and not O
I have an issue with auto indentation that sometimes happens when editing code-like text in vimgolf. I follow keystroke for keystroke somebody else's solution, but I am forced to add extra keystrokes to correct indentation. It seems to affect me differently than others. Tried editing my .vimrc, but that doesn't seem to affect vimgolf. Not sure what the solution is here.
I'm on Pop!_OS (basically Ubuntu).
