When I try to paste code in Trello, I get very weird formatting after saving, but it seems like it does format for code, I just can't get it to work right. What is the best way to paste code into Trello?

Currently I'm just putting links to Gist, but I would prefer to just paste it straight in there.

Either surround the code by backticks (`) for smaller segments of code, or make sure that each line begins with a tab or at least four spaces.

Finally found the answer here:


using markdown is outdated, its not as easy as just using Gist haha, think I'll keep that route... they should really work on their tools.
