How to set the nano tab size

How can you set the nano tab size in the command line editor under Linux?

You have to search for the keyword tab size in the file /etc/nanorc. Here you will find the default tab size of 8 spaces. Under the commented line you can define your own tab size e.g. “set tabsize 2”. Directly after you save the edited file the changes will automatically appear.
