Improving readability by decreasing indentation

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 1 minute read

Readability of code can be vastly improved by decreasing indentation. In this video we'll reverse conditions and early returns to accomplish this.

If you want to see more videos like this one, head over to the video section at Spatie.

Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.

Ah, the headline was a bit irritating. I thought you mean better readability by using 2 instead of 4 spaces and thought whaaaaatttt!? 😅
