I am a big fan of Markdown. How much support is needed? If we only want to
be able to have code snippets, I wrote a really lightweight JavaScript
library to parse text and syntax highlight blocks of code like this:

slackpkg_update_only() {
  slackpkg update gpg
  slackpkg update

It ends up looking something like the attached image.[image: Screenshot at

If we only need code snippet support, this may be easier to integrate than
a full fledged markdown parser (if people are even onboard with that).
