Show whitespace in editor

I created some custom CSS to display whitespace in the editor as it’s something I find quite useful in VSCode to see where I’ve added extra trailing spaces unnecessarily, or where I’m using tabs instead of spaces, etc:

However, at the moment I can’t seem to target leading spaces or multiple spaces in the middle of a line, and I would love to see this as a built-in option, rather than a CSS hack.

Hey there!

Stumbled upon this, while searching for color indention of whitespace - pretty similar to the VSCode snippet you attached. I would love to use that feature in Obsidian. Have you ever thought about adding this to you whitespace plugin?

I would love to have this feature in Obsidian editor too :+1:

Its from the author here itself lol

This would be awesome, but I’m not sure how to achieve it, currently.
I’m sure it’s not impossible, just tricky…
