While using C-c C-, is easy enough for insertion and such, I was wondering
if there was any way of having org-mode honour markdown conventions for
things like code fences and quotes.

``` elisp
#+begin_src
#+end_src

#+begin_quote
#+end_quote
```

being a bit nicer to read with

``` go
code block
```
as well as

Just curious as to whether that's possible. YMMV before you start debating
on whether you think this is a good idea or not... =]

Of course, I'd want the code highlighting especially to work that way,
though... =]  Less concerned with whether it works in export modes for the
moment, more about display atm.

thanks!
Daryl.

Hi Daryl,

If it's for display purposes only, you might be able to simply use
display substitutions for things to appear the way you want. For
example, I use the technique described here:
https://pank.eu/blog/pretty-babel-src-blocks.html to replace the
begin/end_src strings with symbols. I did a quick test, and it seems
that =prettify-symbols-alist= (which is what this code uses) can only
replace for a single character, so I was not able to make it display
the three backticks, but there might be other techniques that can be
used.

Yes, there is another technique.
See part of my config below:


  (defun yant/str-to-glyph (str)
    "Transform string into glyph, displayed correctly."
    (let ((composition nil))
      (dolist (char (string-to-list str)
		    (nreverse (cdr composition)))
	(push char composition)
	(push '(Br . Bl) composition))))

  (append pretty-symbol-patterns
  	`(((yant/str-to-glyph " ") org-specific ,(format  "^\\(\\*\\{%d,%d\\}\\)\\*[^*]" (1- org-inlinetask-min-level) (1- org-inlinetask-max-level)) (org-mode) 1)
          ((yant/str-to-glyph "⇒⇒⇒") org-specific ,(format  "^\\(\\*\\{%d,%d\\}\\)\\(\\*\\)[^*]" (1- org-inlinetask-min-level) (1- org-inlinetask-max-level)) (org-mode) 2)
          (?╭ org-specific "^[ ]*#[+]NAME" (org-mode))
          (?╭ org-specific "^[ ]*#[+]name" (org-mode))
          (?├ org-specific "[ ]*#[+]begin_src" (org-mode))
          (?├ org-specific "[ ]*#[+]BEGIN_SRC" (org-mode))
          (?╰ org-specific "[ ]*#[+]end_src" (org-mode))
          (?╰ org-specific "[ ]*#[+]END_SRC" (org-mode))
          ((yant/str-to-glyph "📁📁📁") org-specific ":\\(ATTACH\\):" (org-mode) 1)
       	  ((yant/str-to-glyph "☠D") org-specific "\\<DEADLINE:" (org-mode))
       	  ((yant/str-to-glyph "◴S") org-specific "\\<SCHEDULED:" (org-mode))))

Ihor,

Awesome, thanks for the tip. Using your code, the following config (inside
the code from https://pank.eu/blog/pretty-babel-src-blocks.html) produces a
display with the backticks instead of begin/end_src:

      (defun yant/str-to-glyph (str)
        "Transform string into glyph, displayed correctly."
        (let ((composition nil))
          (dolist (char (string-to-list str)
                        (nreverse (cdr composition)))
            (push char composition)
            (push '(Br . Bl) composition))))

      (defun rasmus/org-prettify-symbols ()
        (mapc (apply-partially 'add-to-list 'prettify-symbols-alist)
              (cl-reduce 'append
                         (mapcar (lambda (x) (list x (cons (upcase (car x))
(cdr x))))
                                 `(("#+begin_src" . ,(yant/str-to-glyph
"```")) ;; ⎡ ➤ 🖝 ➟ ➤ ✎
                                   ("#+end_src"   . ,(yant/str-to-glyph
"```")) ;; ⎣ ✐
                                   ("#+header:" . ,rasmus/ob-header-symbol)
                                   ("#+begin_quote" . ?«)
                                   ("#+end_quote" . ?»)))))
        (turn-on-prettify-symbols-mode)
        (add-hook 'post-command-hook 'rasmus/org-prettify-src t t))

It looks like this in my config (the bars hide the header arguments):

This looks great (your elisp-fu is impressive) and definitely fulfills
making it look markdown-ish. Thanks! Will plug it in tonight and take it
for a pain.

I am assuming though, from the lack of answers back, that there appears to
be no way to have org-mode grok markdown code blocks (triple backticks)
when it parses as a substitute for `#+BEGIN_SRC` ?

Daryl.

I am no expert in the Org internals, but a quick search shows the strings
BEGIN/END_SRC are hardcoded in a few places, so it seems to me you are
correct, there's probably no easy way to do this.

#+BEGIN_SRC is a part of org syntax, "```" is not.
You will need to modify the org-mode internals to do change it.
Depending on implementation details of org-mode, changing
org-block-regexp and all the occurrences of "BEGIN_SRC" and "END_SRC" in
org mode sources might achieve what you want, but there is no guarantee
that it will not be broken in future versions of org.

True. 

However, if your interest is only in exporting a document with such markup, there is `org-export-before-processing-hook'.

I haven't tried this but if you want to execute such src blocks, maybe polymode would work.
