hi, im using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and would like to ask the correct way to edit a file, especially config file. I am using Nano as the editor, i hv no idea howto add the empty spaces(ident) in front of a line. Should i use Space bar or TAB. When i use TAB, it will have a 'green trail' on the empty spaces. I forget which program, but when i try to put empty spaces in front of a line, it give errors as the program cant read them.

For the eg. below, if we like to add a new line, should we use Space bar or TAB in front?


Code:
{
    "server":"my_server_ip",
    "server_port":8388,
    "local_port":1080,
    "password":"barfoo!",
    "timeout":600,
    "method":"chacha20-ietf-poly1305"
}}
thank you,
