How to have Code coloration?

When I post code on this forum, how do I make it so that I have syntaxic coloration? It seems preformated text is not enough.

Heya — I couldn’t find docs for Discourse specifically, but it works the same way as Github:

In short, after the three backticks at the beginning of your preformatted text, add the file extension to indicate which syntax highlighter you want to use).

This would produce:


// Formatted Javascript Code! console.log(‘hello’);



// Formatted Javascript Code!
