Please enable more code syntax highlighting options Edited

I use Rust, yaml, toml, and Makefile in most projects for work, and that involves writing some documentation on our wiki too.

Edit: also Assembly.

Can we please get further options added (in particular, the ones above)?

If you're using Confluence Server, then you can import your own Syntaxhighlighter brushes (.js files) into the Code Macro options in the 
Administrator options in order to enable syntax highlighting for other languages.

If you're using Confluence Cloud, then you could install Better Code Macro for Confluence, which should have at least some of those built-in.

That's great to see, but means I need to get an admin to install it since it's not a default.

I would much prefer to see the list of supported syntax highlights expanded by default for everyone.

Well, I just saw the release notes for Confluence 6.7, and it appears that YAML will be supported out of the box. I would recommend voting for the following issue on the Atlassian Jira site:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-53554

Until then, your best bet is probably to talk to your admin.
