Code Block Syntax Highlighting

This is a must have feature.
Why not to implement it? it will look much better and it doesn’t require much work

Would very much appreciate this getting prioritized. Notion has this and it just works.


+1 Hopefully soon!! there some workarounds, but native would be much better.

This is a deal breaker, it’s a great product but this will stop me from trialing

Hello Coda Team,
Please can we have this Asap, i enjoy the App, butt this is a must for most of All;

It’s not the same as native support, but @Eric_Koleda made a pack for this

I gave up and moved on… I moved over from Notion as I assumed this would be solved as it seems like such a basic feature. Anyway, maybe one day they will add it…


I was honestly really surprised coda didn’t have this - it’s an absolute must have for me


Honestly very surprised that Coda doesn’t have this, even more surprised that users have been asking for it this long and have gone ignored. I just signed up and was ready to make the switch to Coda, without this basic feature, I’d much rather go back to Notion. It’s unfortunate, I was really looking forward to working with Coda.


plus 1 billion for this please

Why you don’t add this?! Is super basic!

  • 1 ! please. is important

+1! Please this is really important to me too.

:wave: hello! I’m a PM here at Coda. I have some good news, we are currently scoping syntax highlighting :tada: I’d love to hear from ya’ll which languages we should support in this feature.

Please thread with which languages you’d like to see :point_down: & thank you for all your feedback!


Just to quote myself back when I first made the ticket, this is a nice starting place.

I agree.
but I will add a few :

Visual basic . net

I’m just adding a suggestion to the others above :innocent: :

  • Coda Formula Language (CFL)

… Please :pleading_face:

The reasons are :

  1. CFL is only available within :coda: Coda

    Meaning that external editor, GitHub gists, IDE, etc … can somewhat approximately highlight Coda formulas in a way (at least enough to be re-readable months later) but it’s just an approximation…
    It got to the point where I began to look at how I could create my own CFL Syntax Highlight to use in VSCode :sweat_smile: (I ended up pushing the idea aside though) …

  2. I often write Coda formulas within code blocks for various reasons but each time, I have to highlight them manually so they match the formula editor (and are easier to re-read later) which honestly, depending on the length of the formula, can be a pain :innocent: .

  3. As again, CFL is only available within :coda: Coda, it would be a bit strange and sad to have to tell the code block to use any other language than CFL when wanting to use it for a Coda formula :sweat_smile:
