Support block codes

Would like to see proper code blocks like how Quiver does it. Nevertheless, I really like what you guys have made. I am a fan of Agenda now.

The preformatted mode is still pretty far from what it’s supposed to be. Besides, I often find it hard to read or find what I need when both types of text are mixed together.

What are you missing in the preformatted style, aside perhaps from source code colored highlighting?

Colored highlighting would be fantastic.


Just wondering there is any update in this matter. Are you currently working on that feature or is something for the future?

Something for the future I’m afraid, see The features we are working on right now…

+1 for seeing the code sections with a slightly different background, even if it was subtle. At the moment they are hard to distinguish from the other text for me.


Thanks for being honest I appreciate that. However I don’t believe Agenda now fits with my professional needs. Perhaps in the future when those small things will be added I’ll reconsider.

Sure, fair enough, be sure to keep an eye on Agenda!

The ``` + space / return still not working for me

Ah, I just checked but the trick is not to let it follow by a space or return but directly by the content you want to escape.

It works a bit different to in a markdown editor. Usually you just have the three ticks at the start and end of the block, but in Agenda we don’t preserve the markdown, so it works more like a toggle. Type the ticks, enter a space, and then start typing your preformatted content (no return). It will change to preformatted.

Just adding another vote for code blocks. There’s a plugin that everyone uses that supports a ton of languages, that finally added Swift support.

Do you know which plugin it is?

I think it must be this one. I remember for a while they did not support Swift but they do now.

+1 for code highlight :slight_smile: … At first, I won’t need anything fancy just a code block easier to spot. The preformated one is good but it still very difficult to spot on … Hope you can put it on your todo list. Really appreciate what you guys are doing.


Will be great to have a syntax highlight or a slight dark background for code block. +1

Agreed :slight_smile: +1 from my side

GitHub-style code fencing is the way to go! :slight_smile:
