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? like I once had in SciTE, I want to see some small vertical lines visually indicating the indent level.

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
