Description

2 years ago
What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
==================================================================================
Editor in source mode should contain line numbers.

What problems would this solve?
===============================
It would be easier to update a webpage on translations with line numbers as it's shown in diff but not in source mode so that we can locate the diffs content.

Who would use this?
===================
Every translator on MDN.

What would users see?
=====================
Line numbers.

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
Translators would have an easier way to update articles.

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================

5 minutes of research did not find any CKEditor settings to enable line numbers.  There is a 5-year-old plugin [1] that claims to add paragraph numbering, but it is doubtful it still works with modern CKEditor.  It sounds like we'd have to author our own plugin to add this feature.
