And what confuses me is that i have use set noexpandtab command in ~/.vimrc, but it doesn’t work. Today i cannot stand it anymore, so i search it and find that answer. It seems like python plugin overwrite my setting.

Solution

  1. use :verbose set noexpandtab? to find the plugin file

  2. search expandtab in that file
