I, or rather my community, have a project, an html5 game. I want the community to be able to fork it. We’re considering rewriting it in C++17 for performance reasons (it’s only 6000 lines of code and few JS-only features are used), so I want glitch to have C++ support. Either a simple syntax highlighter or embed vs code (an electron app) in the browser like stackblitz did.

Thanks for the suggestion!

We use CodeMirror in the editor and don’t have any plans to change that on the horizon. You can access the CodeMirror instance in the browser as application.editor() so you might be able to hook into that to leverage whatever CodeMirror C++ support is available that we’re not currently including.
