#563 new enhancement

Line number handler in recipe editor

Idea comes from: "Better validation errors" from the Bitten Google Group, specifically the third post which was by anatoly techtonik.

Where there is a recipe error Bitten reports the line number and column. Using the current editor it is not always easy to find where this error is.


  • Add line numbers to the recipe editor.
  • When there is an error, position the cursor in the editor (minimally) at the reported line and (ideally) column.

Does anyone know of a decent Javascript text editing widget that we could include? Obviously it also needs a Bitten-compatible license.

There is at least one with MIT license at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1995370/html-adding-line-numbers-to-textarea The plugin will be even more awesome with resize feature like in Chrome.

  • Milestone changed from 0.6.1 to 0.7

More links from techtonik via IRC:

Osimons says a Jquery plugin is available in Trac 0.12dev so we can look at adding these sort of features for Bitten 0.7 (which is intended to have Trac 0.12+ support).
