I’m not sure if it’s already possible and I just don’t find it, but for the development related topics, it’s quite relevant to add syntax highlighting to the code snipets. There is
indent preformatted text by 4 spaces
but I hope this thread framework allows for extensions like that.
On a related note, as far as external links go, I think it’s always worth reminding people how to permalink to particular github code lines like so.
