Summary: Line Numbers on Diff Displays and File BrowserLine Numbers in File Browser

Diffs include line numbers in the current development version (which will be 0.8).

Line numbers for file viewing is harder, because we rely on external tools/libraries for embedding the file contents in the HTML page.

Changing component and summary to reflect that this ticket only apples to the browser module.

Keywords: numbers added

The solution is quite simple, however my null knowledge of python makes it impossible for me to suppy a fix :(

We need to add the following CSS:

pre.line-numbers {
  width: 42px;
  float: left;
  background: #eee;
  border-right: #ccc;
  margin-top: 0;

pre.code-block {
  margin-top: 0;
  margin-left: 42px;

In pre.line-numbers we should put the same font and size as the one used in pre.code-block!

Then when generating the file-viewing page we need to generate the line numbers. For this we need to find out the number of lines of the file wich I'll call $numLines in the following PHP code

$out = '<pre>';
for ($i=1; $i<=$numLines; $i++) {
  //this add spaces at the beggining to make the string of a fixed length of 4
  //This allows to for a max. of 9999 lines
  $out .= str_pad( $i, 4, " ", STR_PAD_LEFT ); 
  $out .= "\n"; //since it's a <pre> a simple \n works
$out .= '</pre>';

This method allows to keep the line numbers separated from the code, so multiple lines code selection is possible. I've tested it in IE, Firefox and Opera.

Version: 0.7.1devel

It would be great to have these be anchor tags, so I can have a link like:


Then I could have a script that turns my java stack traces in my ticket into hyperlinks into the src browser.
