Yesterday my friend called me programming Jesus for getting her code to work properly

She's started learning python. All I did was fix the indentation issues and explain that whitespace is finicky in python and send her a couple of article links about it. pretty boring of an issue

I'm kinda bored I wish someone had a more substantial issue for me to look at and have to actually learn something new to fix it

Considering finding a project on github to try and contribute to as a side project when I need a brake from my projects. But as a worse-than-mediocre college coder I'm intimidated to even try

    Haven't dealt much with Python, but this is something that has always confused me a little about it - like imagine accidentally hitting Space or Tab somewhere and messing up your code just for that.

    @kamen it's not really that bad. Even when I was first learning it back in high school I never had a big issue with spacing unless I was trying to break something (just to see what would happen), and back the all I had to use was IDLE I didn't even know what an IDE was when I was first starting with python

    Her issue was that she was watching a tutorial and for some reason considered spacing inconsequential leading to everything breaking but most people in my opinion won't have any spacing issues that bad

    Agreed, have used python for 10 weeks and never had any spacing issues, my IDEA alarmed me immediatelu

    I am trying to get webrtc to work to be able to stream a local video in real time. It has been frustrating. Maybe you could give that a try 😜.

    Just enable whitespace symbols in your editor np++, or any intlij IDE can do it.
    Use pycharm community.
