The markdown used on Stack Exchange and the one used on GitHub are fairly similar, but have some subtle differences. For example, on GitHub, you can add
``` before and after a set of lines to format them as code, but that doesn't work on Stack Exchange.
As someone who writes markdown on both sites, I find these subtle differences inhibit the development of muscle memory (e.g. I often type
``` on Stack Exchange, only to realize (again) that it doesn't work and erase and correct it).
Is there any plan / path forward to converge these two flavours of Markdown?
Note: I gave
``` as an example, but I'm asking about general convergence between the two flavours, rather than one particular extension.
