Post Formatting Wish: Add more Code Highlighting Options (GDL, PowerShell, bash/zsh, CMake)


This wish mainly concerns the Developer Forum, but since the implementation would probably affect all forums, I'm opening the topic here.

I'm finding myself answering quite a lot of questions in the developer forum with code examples & snippets.

It would be great if we had code highlighting support for all relevant languages for developing Archicad Add-Ons and objects.


The relevant languages I'm missing are:

  • GDL for Archicad Objects
  • PowerShell: The most relevant CLI language on Windows
  • bash/zsh: The two most relevant CLI languages on macOS
  • CMake: For modern AC Add-On build configurations

Yeah, it is funny that the forum does not include GDL highlighting, more so since it is apparently coming with the GDL refresh, when ever that is happening.

I totally agree with you.

I'd like to add just one universal feature — full Markdown (CommonMark specification) support, which will be enough.

Then we could use md code tag (```) with a wide range of different languages supported:



# Python code here

# bash/zsh code here
