"inconsistent use of tabs and spaces in indentation"


Don't use tabs.

  1. Set your editor to use 4 spaces for indentation.
  2. Make a search and replace to replace all tabs with 4 spaces.
  3. Make sure your editor is set to display tabs as 8 spaces.

Note: The reason for 8 spaces for tabs is so that you immediately notice when tabs have been inserted unintentionally - such as when copying and pasting from example code that uses tabs instead of spaces.


Using the autopep8 command below fixed it for me:

 autopep8 -i my_file.py

Documentation for autopep8 linked here.


For VSCode users

Ctrl+Shift+P or View->Command Palette.

Type

>Convert Indentation to Spaces

press Enter.
