Inserting Syntax Highlighted Code Snippets in Tickets, Wikis & More

Last month we released a new Snippets tool that allows you to easily create syntax highlighted code snippets to share with team members. While the tool has been widely accepted, many users asked for the ability to insert these code snippets inline with wiki pages, tickets, messages, etc. We listened and just released this updated functionality. Here is how it works:

Create the snippet and copy the markup reference (see below).

snippet markup3

Paste the markup reference into any wiki page, ticket description, ticket comment, merge request comment, message, etc.

Save and your snippet will now show inline. Any changes to the main snippet will reflect wher ever it is embedded.

If you do not have the Snippets tool installed, check out the release announcement for instructions on how to install it. 

We hope you enjoy this new feature. Happy coding!

This is great but putting the code inline within a post would be less cumbersome. Even if putting it inline stored it in the snippets tool that would be fine. Having to go to the snippets tool to create a snippet, then go back and reference that snippet is a bad workflow, IMHO.
