I propose adding Arcade as an option for the code sample. Considering Arcade is a language developed by ESRI specifically for ArcGIS, it's kinda mind-boggling that it isn't available.

It seems most of the code could be copied from the JavaScript formatting (which I use as a substitute). My biggest gripe is that it doesn't format the Arcade globals:

var a = $feature.Field
var fs = FeatureSetByName($datastore, "FeatureClass")

I suggest you put this in as an idea. You’ll get a kudos on it from me for sure!

I'd gladly do that. Couldn't find an idea board for the community, though. Where would you suggest posting it?

Just to let you know we do have adding Arcade as an option to use in Community post listed as a future enhancement item in this doc.  Known Issues and Future Enhancements - Esri Community . We are still having active discussions on how to make this happen. As there is no formal Idea Exchange for Community specific ideas then posting as a question here in the Feedback board is the best place. Thanks for sharing with us your desire to see this added to the Community experience.
