I'm trying to create a kotlin tutorial in markdown, but I have not found of any editor supporting ```kotlin codeblocks.

Is there any editor currently supporting (by default or with a plugin) syntax highlighting for kotlin inside markdown codeblocks?

Please validate that highlighting works, before providing any recommendations.

The current version (2019.3) of IntelliJ IDEA Community supports it without additional plugins:

After this fix the fwcd Kotlin plugin for vs-code now also supports kotlin codeblocks:
