In many forms of Markdown, I can do fenced code blocks that are formatted as plain text, if not also syntax highlighted. For example:
As a computer science researcher, I’d love to use Findings. There’s so much about it that I love … but without the ability to include code blocks, I end up taking most of my notes to a Markdown editor. I’m currently using Quiver, but there are other note taking apps that do code blocks in notes like
- Dropbox Paper
- Evernote (though I’d highly recommend not implementing this feature like Evernote did… their code blocks are why I didn’t renew my last subscription)
I would also offer that there are already code highlighting open source projects that might inspire you:
All of these take code as an input and produce formatted HTML as an output. I think this is how Findings presents your notes, no?
This feature is the only thing stopping me from buying a Pro license, especially since I waste so much money buying Dropbox and Evernote subscriptions. But because of the nature of my research, probably two thirds of my notes are code snippets, whether they’re actual code, or just an algorithm’s pseudocode. I can’t use Findings without that unless I keep all of my notes in parallel in another app.
