Wrapping newlines via CSS


This is a simple tip how to wrap newlines without converting newlines to <br> tags. This is quite handy if you have a text without formatting and the only need is to wrap text paragraphs. You don't have to think about HTML sanitization or conversion.

.wrapped-text {
    white-space: pre-line;

Just trim newlines from the beginning and end of the text before rendering. Value pre-line doesn't render whitespaces in the middle of the text.
