Hi Anthony.

Generally, four whitespaces are used for indentation and are preferred over tabs.

Keep in mind that the indentation replaces the curly braces usually used to isolate/define code blocks (and scope) in other languages, such as JavaScript.

Be consistent with your indenting!

I hope that helps.

Stay safe and happy coding!
