[flask] Jinja2: don’t print empty lines

When using Flask (or Django), I don’t care much about the generated HTMLs. They may be ugly, who cares. However, there is one thing that bothers me. When I write this for instance in a template:

    {% if True %}
    {% endif %}

the generated output looks like this:




See? Jinja2 litters the output with empty lines. How to get rid of them?

The official documentation talks about this here. It says you need to enable both trim_blocks and lstrip_blocks. In Flask, you can do that like this:

app = Flask(__name__)
app.jinja_env.trim_blocks = True
app.jinja_env.lstrip_blocks = True
