Strict indentation is good

Strict indentation is good primarily for two reasons:

  1. Avoids nesting mishaps.
    Helps produce valid HTML.
  2. It enforces good readability of code.
    Helpful when a programmer revisits that code.

Some languages used in front-end development which enforce strict indentation:

  • Haml, an HTML template language.
  • Jade, another HTML template langauge.
  • Stylus, a CSS preprocessor.
