Howdy hey hello. Included in the release today are a lot of tasty treats that we've been meaning to get to for a while now. Some are focused on performance, and some are new features. Changes:  The unseen question count (on the chat tabs) will now track the number of questions since you were last online. i.e., If you log off, next time you log back on you will see the number of questions posted since you logged off.  Text tool in drawings. Awww yeahh  Code block tags (see below)  Some fixes to polish up realtime changes. This fixes some issues on the profile page.  Some template reorganization which should hopefully result in quicker load times.

Code blocks are best explained by @farmdawgnation, the man behind the magic. ``` \` single line code surrounded by single ticks \` \`\`\`syntax code goes here \`\`\` ``` for example: ```javascript alert("i am a booyan!") ```

Indeed. This is going to be useful for the computer science group. We support a handful of languages. HTML, JavaScript, XML, C, C++, Scala, Java, CoffeeScript, (I think) ObjectiveC, and maybe a few others. If there's demand for a language we don't support and the library we use has the ability to do it, we might roll it in as well.

farmdawgnationBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4
You can also, now provide a language and the library will try to guess. But don't be mad when it's wrong. :P

I was wondering, why not you guys add the "resizing" thing with this drawing attachment. Like let's say if we want to write simple short equationdw:1345934506107:dwI've showed the equation, but the extra space is too much which is of no use. If we shorten this out, it will look alot nicer. Is this possible?

How can we use those javascript boxes?
 one year ago

mattfeuryBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12
it's just a way to add syntax highlighting to code so it is easier to read. It's not just javascript either. \`type anything in ticks\` to become `type anything in ticks` \`\`\` or you can do three ticks to generate a block \`\`\` like so: ``` or you can do three ticks to generate a block ``` if you type a language immediately after the initial set of ticks, it will be highlighted using syntax parsing for that language \`\`\`javascript var f = function(argument1) { return "hoaah" } \`\`\`

It's purely a formatting tool. It should also do syntax highlighting but that seems a little borked at the moment. single ticks (\`) are for single line code blocks triple ticks (\`\`\`) surround multiple lines.

@Hero That's intentional. If we try to apply normal wordwrap semantics to code things get harder to read than if we just scroll the container. Using the preview people should be able to figure out how to format their blocks to avoid the horizontal scroll fairly easily.

Yes, as I said above. If we were to apply normal semantics this... ```scala val someTemplate = Templates("templateshidden" :: "awesomesauce" :: "somethingelse" :: Nil) openOr NodeSeq.Empty ```

Whereas you might normally provide better semantics for wrapping. Also, it seems that our regular expressions aren't quite working how we expected. Multiple code blocks in one post don't play well. We're going to look into that as well.
