As there is more and more GLSL code (amongst other languages) posted on Vuo & there is a great learning environment on Vuo, (with more GLSL features to come in 1.3) can we get a more code friendly Markdown version?

Currently we need to indent 4 spaces for code blocks:

code
block
is 
here

Can Team Vuo think about using Git-Hubs version of markdown if possible? https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/wiki/Markdown-Cheatsheet

this would allow the previous code block to be written:

```

code

block

is

here

```

Also there are additional online tools to allow code formatting! One would only need to do this:

```GLSL

code

block

is

here

```

To get GLSL highlighting!

Making it easier to format

Making it easier to format code, and adding syntax highlighting, would be doable. Doing it specifically with GitHub-style formatting would be difficult as there's no ready-built way to add that to our site, but we could use a different formatting syntax called GeSHi. We already use GeSHi on our internal project management system and it's quite easy to use.

alexmitchellmus, if you're OK with GeSHi, we can schedule this feature request.
