I would like some indent guides for gedit, this is very useful in python code. I couldn't find such an option in the settings, nor a plugin to add it, does anyone know how to make such a thing visible? i just mean some small vertical lines visually indicating the indent level, like i once had in SciTE.

They must be customisable to appear between n spaces, usually 2 or 4, and should be visually quiet like 1 pixel width and light grey.

The same question was asked on stackoverflow. The answer links to a page that doesn't seem to exist anymore, but I think you should check out this list of plugins. –  Roland Smith Oct 27 '13 at 23:58
