Weird indentation problems.

Reported by alexannese | July 3rd, 2009 @ 11:51 AM

I installed RedCloth from the gem, and it works well in irb and script/console. It's converting in my app, but extra white space is added and really screws with more complex markup.

I tried taking off hard line breaks, but that didn't solve the problem.

I included a picture of the orignal text, it appears that ON SAVE, white space gets added to the markup, and when you try to edit the value, (t.text :page_text in my database), it displays the incorrect formatting.

Here is the HTML output, which looks normal.

        <label for="page_page_text">Page text</label><br />
        <textarea cols="40" id="page_page_text" name="page[page_text]" rows="20">h1. hello
    h2. there

    # how
    # are
    # you</textarea>

    Darn, I didn't expect lighthouse to render [pre] tags of my comment. somebody please delete my messed up comment above. Sorry.

    The same happened to me. Are you using the haml plugin? Haml nicely formats HTML output by indenting child elements, which it does to make HTML output more readable I guess. The problem is, it also indents elements within CodeRay's [pre] output, which results in every code line (except the first one) being displayed indented in the browser since within a [pre] tag, whitespace does count.

    Btw, haml only does indentation in development mode. In production mode, it sets the :ugly template option, which skips the indentation. E.g. on my blog http://zargony.com/ source formatting looks fine while it looks terrible in development mode on my local machine.

    Sorry, alexannese, I don't think the problem lies within RedCloth. RedCloth does add some indentation to lists and things when it outputs HTML, but not when just saving Textile to your database.
