In my Rails app, I have a lot of data that is declared as
text in the migration file. But when I print these attributes/fields out in the view, all the line breaks are lost and I get one large chunk of text. How do I maintain the line breaks?
This is an HTML problem. Its rules state that consecutive whitespace is converted to a single space.
Rails has a
simple_format function that wraps blocks of text in
tags so you get the separation you want
