vim should reset indent size settings when changing file types

David Demelier
Hello,

I'm not sure if there is way to fix that, but I actually would like to
use tabs of size 8 for every file except html.

So basically I create a ~/.vim/ftplugin.html file with:

set ts=4
set sts=4
set sw=4
set noet

Then, runnin `vim foo.html` will set ts, sts and sw correctly. But then,
if I open a new file different from html directly from vim, it keeps
those settings.

Example:

vim foo.html
:e CMakeLists.txt <- ts, sts and sw is still 4

However, starting vim directly to edit a CMake file will use the
defaults a size of 8.

This means that I should create a ftplugin file for *every* kind of
filetype or to quit vim and re-open.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think all settings that came from a
~/.vim/ftplugin should be removed once you switch filetype. Or perhaps I
miss an option that already does this?

What are you recommendations?

Regards

If you use setlocal instead of set, that should do it.

Oh, that was so easy. I wonder how can I miss that.

Thanks!
