Preserving whitespace for plain text feed items #591

For JSON Feed items that have only content_text (no content_html) present, I have a feature request: it would be lovely if Feedbin would set the CSS property white-space: pre-wrap for the body text.


I have a full-text feed of an email list. It translates HTML emails to JSON Feed's content_html and plain text emails to JSON Feed's content_text. The HTML emails show up great in Feedbin, but the plain text emails aren't really readable, because the white space formatting is lost.

Here's an example:

All I need to do is go into my browser's devtools and set white-space: pre-wrap on that element, and suddenly it looks like this:

Perfect! I'd love it if Feedbin would work this way out of the box for plain text items.
