Manually indent code?

In my opinion you don’t need to indent at all but that’s just me :man_shrugging:

For readability, you really need to use some indentation, just click auto format and forget about it.


Yeah, that’s what I do, Replit kind of just indents for me so my code looks half decent. I can’t recall using tabs or space at all.


I’m sorry, but what? No indentation?


Does that always work though?

Depends on the IDE, language and if you made mistakes in the code …


Yeah, because I never really got used to pressing the tab key, I eventually became dependent on auto-indentation. Thankfully, many IDEs like VSCode (and Replit) do this for you.

An essential thing that coding classes should teach you is indentation: I haven’t taken a class (my class is still on ping pong games on Scratch) which teaches you text-based coding, other than HTML and a sprinkle of CSS and no indentation or formatting tips were taught. (not like Scratch tells you to indent soo)

Can’t indent a block amiright?

Select the block of code you wanna indent and press tab

In scratch? i didnt know you could indent scratch blocks

  1. bruh my draft was deleted so i have to retype this
  2. qwerty was probably talking about a text of code, because afaik scratch doesn’t have code you can indent at all lol. Maybe in Scratch 4, I’ve seen “leaks” (note the quotations) that show a text-based edit that can turn into a block code editor (kinda like The same leaks showed a much nicer UI, more cloud variables, and a nicer commenting area and more. I don’t know how real this is but it’s something to wait for. I saw this a year back (dunno where) and they never really talked about when it was released…

Whoops. Didn’t realize you were talking about scratch.
