This is a feature suggestion.
A picture is worth a thousand words. What we have at the moment:
We could detect whether the next line is a hanging indent by checking the number of indent tabs compared to the previous line. If the difference is more than +1 tab, this is a hanging indent – we can show only one guide.
I can investigate making it an extension preference.
Thank you very much :)
@tomekwi, I played with this a bit this week. I haven't been able to figure out how to grab the previous line indentation from within the CodeMirror overlay tokenizer. It doesn't have a good way to grab information outside of the context of the current line it is parsing. I posted a question on it at:
Let's see what they say.
@tomekwi, I am closing this issue as a code challenge. It is a new issue category I created for issues and enhancements that I have unsuccessfully attempted to solve.
What this means is I am stuck and I am asking for help from the community. A link to this issue will go into the extension README.md file so that others can find it and offer ideas and solutions as well. I think this is a better solution than just leaving the issue open forever or closing it as wont fix.
If, at any point in the future, a good solution emerges, I will reopen and add this enhancement.
Thanks for taking your time, anyway.
