Test help code doesn't compile

CODE HIGHLIGHTING!

module Main exposing (main)

import Html exposing (Html, text)


main : Html msg
main =
    text "Hello, World!"

Edit: it’s really fun to see everybody testing things out in this thread :stuck_out_tongue:

Neat! I get a message from the system about what happened and what my options are to proceed. Pretty dang cool.

How did you get the highlighting to work? :thinking:

elm = "hello"

It’s the same as fenced code blocks from GFM.

```elm
your code here
```

Since Atwood is involved, I think this is probably going to be commonmark. That’s good! It’s a nice spec.

reply to a reply perhaps ?

So replies to specific posts show up both “inline” and at the bottom, or is that not a general thing?

Seems pretty cool. Better than Google groups. Not a very high bar, but hey.

The inline replies are a little odd. I’ve found it’s clearer to quote reply like this.

Yeah, it’s a little like slack threads: rather unhelpful, and generally a sign that things are derailing.

Can be. Something we should encourage: if you quote a post, you can spin it off into a new topic and a link will automatically be created. That can keep things organized a little neater.

Testing a reply because I can’t see this whole slack threads thing and I’m confused?

Edit: I feel really dumb. How do I see threaded replies? :confused:

check out Noah’s reply to me above. See how it has my face in the top right? You can click it to expand context.

This is why I think quoted replies or spinning off threads are better :stuck_out_tongue:

THIS IS HTE ONLY THING KEEPING ME FROM USING ELM WHERE ARE THE TYPECLASSES IT SHOULDN’T BE HARD TO IMPLEMENT I MEAN HASKELL HAS IT RIGHT?

Haha:

Thanks for helping me write better posts, Discourse.

Yeah, the reply to a reply is a bit confusing and hard to follow.

Ohhh. That’s… confusing.

Edit: so it kinda opens above, but it’s not recursive (I can’t get to the reply of the reply, as Murphy noted…) :cry:

Edit: pretty cool but also weirdly small

@brian is there an admin setting for the size of onebox embeds?

Looking good y’all! Looking forward to using this.

On the topic of pasting code snippets into Discourse threads, you can also use “details” blocks for things that contain spoilers.

So, if you’re helping someone out, you can give a hint and still collapse the solution:

<details>
  <summary>Spoiler Alert!</summary>

  This text will be hidden...
</details>

This is what the results will look like:

Spoiler Alert!

This text will be hidden…
