I think @mee is correct, to enable colors highlighting it appears we need to:

  • request through a feature request that certain languages be enabled (say lang-cpp) which would allow users to provide language hints in their answers such as <!-- language: lang-cpp -->. Language hints on eosio.stackexchange are currently ignore, and syntax highlighting just defaults to grey.

  • and also we could request that some tags be associated with a default language. The default language for all tags lang-none which again is just plain grey.

For more info see the Note to editors in this answer: What is syntax highlighting and how does it work?

  • Any progress on this? Syntax highlighting would be really useful – confused00 Jul 26 at 22:39
  • I am not sure how to move this forward, I think one of our mods might need to get involved, I've tried pinging them. – Vlad Jul 27 at 18:00

    I have written a message to @RobertCartaino (our stackexchange community manger). Will keep you guys updated. – TeeAttack42 Jul 29 at 16:31

We already have code highlighting. It's great to have since people are often cross referencing EOS code or github snippets.

You can either do multiline:


Or section of a paragraph like this.
