Lz1234 , the python style guide (pep 8) mentiones to use 4 spaces per indentstion level. the tab key can also be used if the editor can convert tab to spaces. playground on android devices support this. mixing (real) tabs and spaces is not allowed. for more information read: https://peps.python.org/pep-0008/#indentation

It's better to use tabs. It's faster. In some editors, it is possible to adjust the tab stop value. You can do the same number of spaces. But then again, tabulation is faster
