Description

If a message is too long to fit into a single line, it will be wrapped to a 2nd line. The issue is that 2nd line doesn't align with the 1st line. Smuxi should align wrapped messages.

[Frontend-GNOME] Indent multi-line messages and events (closes: #727)

History

The Gtk.TextView has Gtk.TextTags which allow to individually set indention width (see http://developer.gnome.org/gtk/2.24/GtkTextTag.html#GtkTextTag--indent). This is important as each message has a different sized "prefix" which is the sender nick usually. The issue is though that the MessageModel makes no distinction between the sender prefix and the actually message, so the GNOME frontend doesn't know how to obtain the right indent width from the MessageModel.

Either the MessageModel needs to be extended with an IdentMessagePart to hint the frontend or by separating the sender from the message itself. Either way, this would be a breakage of the 0.8 protocol! :(

For now a hack was used to extract the nick from the message (using a regex)
