# Color syntax highlighting for code?

Usually when code is typed in questions/answers color syntax highlighting shows up if the language is specified as follows,

python
import numpy as np



But it doesn't show up for question/answers in this site.

import numpy as np


Also see for example this answer.
Is this feature not enabled here? Shouldn't this be enabled here as this site would contain a lot of code?

• Yes, it needs to be enabled; I guess, if your post gets a few more upvotes, one of the CM will do that for us. May 1, 2020 at 15:39
• I believe StackOverflow has this enabled. May 1, 2020 at 16:35
• @NikeDattani All the coding sites have it enabled, and there is code hinting taken from the tags. On Chemistry it can be invoked like shown above, as long as there are not restrictions for beta sites (there shouldn't) this should be easy, -- given it has enough support from the community here.

• @Martin-マーチン thanks for your insight as always. Yes, it was quick for them to enable MathJax, so perhaps the same might be true for color. It is the weekend though. Let's see! May 1, 2020 at 22:15
