I got frustrated of not being able to tell the tabs apart as I was working on stuff. So this is my so-dumb-it's-smart solution.
The only hitch in my gittyup was that I had to add it to .gitignore, which untracked the file, which deletes it, and had to manually slip it back onto the server. Although it looks like there are smarter ways.
Wanna really learn Git?
No matter what kind of developer you are, you'll need to know git. Git is version control that unites us all. Frontend Masters has a great deep-dive on git, taking you well beyond the basics and into stuff like git hooks, rebasing, and dealing with merge conflicts, which you'll be very glad you know.
