Questions:

I am using pycharm IDE for python development it works perfectly fine for django code so suspected that converting tabs to spaces is default behaviour, however in python IDE is giving errors everywhere because it can’t convert tabs to spaces automatically is there a way to achieve this.

Answers:

Change the code style to use spaces instead of tabs:

spaces

Then select a folder you want to convert in the Project View and use Code | Reformat Code.

For selections, you can also convert the selection using the “To spaces” function. I usually just use it via the ctrl-shift-A then find “To Spaces” from there.
