Tabs not spaces in _config.yml lead to parsing errors #421

In the wiki page for the configuration file it states:

You cannot use spaces in configuration files. This will either lead to parsing errors, or Jekyll will use the default settings.

This does not seem true. I used tabs in my _config.yml

pygments: true

[tab]url: ""

and got a parsing error. Replacing the tab with 2 spaces solved the issue.


Isn't that exactly as described in the wiki?


No? The wiki say you cannot use spaces. While it should say tabs.


Fixed it. Thanks!


np, you are welcome! Great lib!
