Markdown spoiler sections - is there any need?

+2
−0

Standard markdown does not include spoiler sections (hidden until clicked on). Personally, on those rare occasions when I find need to temporarily hide something, I'm happy using <details> HTML tags instead, which gives a sufficiently similar effect:

<details>
    <summary>Spoiler! Click here to reveal</summary>
    Secret details
</details>

is rendered as:

Spoiler! Click here to reveal Secret details

However, I'm aware that not all Codidact communities are related to code, and not everyone is familiar with HTML. Is there any demand for a way to do this in markdown without needing to use tags?


Currently, Codidact uses CommonMark markdown, which does not support spoilers.
