Set width of tabs in Github.

I like to use tabs instead of spaces for tabulated lines (INORITE?), but GitHub defaults to 8 space tab width.

Turns out Github honours .editorconfig.

So adding the lines:

[*.{js,jsx,html,sass.scss,handlebars,partial,hbs,json}]
indent_style = tab
indent_size = 4

Will set the size. Also these are useful:

charset = utf-8
trim_trailing_whitespace = true
