Most apps that use MD type syntax suppport specifying a language when using the code block:

 

```javascript

// this is JavaScript code

console.log('hi!'):

```

Trello supports the code block but seems to ignore the language parameter of the code block.

How about adding syntaxt highlighting support for Trello ?

@Krisztian Kovacs Thanks for the information! I wasn't able to find the feature-request link from the Trello's website.

 

I sent an email to feature-ideas@trello.com: I'll let you know if it's added onto the board :)

Disappointing that they don't seem to have added it yet.

Trello now gives you a drop down box to select a language as soon as you type "```"

When editing the card description or comment text it shows within code markup data-language

However as soon as you save the description/comment text that attribute disappears. 

It seems like they've a bit of thought to it but then given up. Nothing appears here:

Which is their new roadmap

This feature would be great for Trello boards and give an extra string to the bow for things like Knowledge hubs.

If you're using Chrome, you can check out this awesome free all-in-one extension, with card title markup, table markdown, script syntax highlighting and much more:

hi there,

I could totally get behind this.

I'm not sure here is the best place for feature requests, trello has an email address for that  feature-ideas@trello.com

And then they'll put it on their board: https://trello.com/b/nC8QJJoZ/trello-development-roadmap

I'd never want to steal your idea, but I would love to vote for it (no voting on the board though). :)
