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

Hi!

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

 

Best,

Bernd

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:

 

 

```py
# Python code here
```

```sh
# bash/zsh code here
```
