I am wondering about the maximum line length I can use on this forum for displayed code that doesn’t result in a scrollbar.
I found that 70 works OK, but it depends on the magnification. Is there a recommended value?
This helps for trying it out:
I see three fours on my phone without scrolling
Two 3s cut off on mine. Should have splurged on that bigger screen…
While I understand that some people use phones (which are getting bigger) to browse the web, I am primarily interested in the environment that they would use for coding.
Making browser windows narrow can also replicate what happens on phone, but I assume people use fullscreen or close. So 70 characters seems reasonable.
On my PC screen there seems to be space left for about 4 more digits before scrolling would start. 70 seems like a nice, workable number.
