Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just approved several edits from a user adding explicit syntax highlighting to questions with the tag. Apparently since this was last discussed, Google Code Prettify has added support for Dart.

I suggest it's time to follow suit and update the default syntax highlighting associated with the tag. Adding it manually to every question sounds like way too much work, even if I all I have to do is click the "Approve" button.

Been meaning to raise this request myself. =) – hjpotter92 Mar 22 '13 at 5:06
Any updates on this? Any way this can be set by tag wiki owners? – Juniper Belmont Apr 19 '13 at 7:13
Hmmm, revision 12 in "Syntax highlighting language hints" seems to suggest even explicitly adding the language hint is not supported? – Arjan Aug 24 '13 at 16:15
@Arjan Perhaps the problem is that the developers have not updated our version of Prettify to the latest? – Cody Gray Aug 25 '13 at 9:38
Okay, Cody, so then "several edits from a user adding explicit syntax highlighting to questions with the dart tag" implies people are preparing for future enhancements? (By adding <!-- language: lang-dart --> while that doesn't do anything yet?) Or did you mean they are adding the JavaScript hint instead? – Arjan Aug 25 '13 at 10:10

Coming to you live on Stack Overflow... highlighting support for [dart] and [erlang].

Shouldn't this be migrated to MSO? – Shadow Wizard Apr 1 '15 at 20:32
@ShadowWizard Meh. Plugin support applies to other sites that have syntax highlighting enabled. And I don't care to shuffle old questions around for the sake of perfect categorization. – Adam Lear Apr 1 '15 at 20:36
Yeah, but it's clearly about very specific tags which exist only on Stack Overflow. Anyway, meh indeed. Thanks! :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 1 '15 at 20:40
