Subject: Using backticks for the inline code delimeter?
Date: Wed, 31 Mar 2021 13:48:28 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CA+pajWJ99Vsb1VDTnJg9KquzeY=05T16B9bRdHXTKTjLQcfAYw@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Markdown uses backticks to denote inline code which should get special
(typically monospace) formatting, org uses the tilde character.

Now I know that org is not markdown, is far more powerful than markdown,
and is not (mostly) the same use cases as markdown. But this one use case
*does* overlap. And the backticks thing is becoming so ingrained that not
only do I reach for it all the time, but I've seen it crop up on this very
mailing list and even in some README.org documents.

I would like to submit that org consider adopting backticks as an alternate
way of denoting inline code.

Aside from any official movement, I would like to add this to my own files
- is there a straightforward way to extend the org parser to do this?
