What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

It would be very helpful on question chats (when they go live) to have gist 'onebox' support, to make it easy to share code.

@Jeff If gist is [status-planned], what about other services such as pastie or pastebin? –  KennyTM Jul 17 '10 at 6:28

Regarding waffles♦'s comment,

You can write multi-line messages with Shift+Enter. Moreover, you can just paste multi-line messages and they will be formatted as monospaced automatically (example: http://chat.meta.stackoverflow.com/chats/message/5211).

However, there's no code highlighting.

The useful part of gists is that there is syntax highlighting already there. –  Dan McClain Jul 14 '10 at 16:41
    
@phsr: Syntax highlighting is a different issue. –  KennyTM Jul 14 '10 at 17:20
