Markdown Reference

Announcekit uses markdown for post body text. Here are some of the rules;


To create a heading, add one to six # symbols before your heading text. The number of # you use will determine the size of the heading.

  # The largest heading
  # The second largest heading
  ###### The smallest heading

Styling text

You can indicate emphasis with bold, italic, or strikethrough text.

  **This is bold text**
  *This text is italicized*
  ~~This was mistaken text~~
  **This text is _extremely_ important**

Quoting text

You can quote text with a >.

  In the words of Abraham Lincoln:

  > Pardon my French

Quoting code

You can call out code or a command within a sentence with single backticks. The text within the backticks will not be formatted.

  Use `git status` to list all new or modified files that haven't yet been committed.

To format code or text into its own distinct block, use triple backticks.

  Some basic Git commands are:

git status
git add
git commit


You can create an inline link by wrapping link text in brackets [ ], and then wrapping the URL in parentheses ( ).

You can make an unordered list by preceding one or more lines of text with - or *.

- George Washington
- John Adams
- Thomas Jefferson

Paragraphs and line breaks

You can create a new paragraph by leaving a blank line between lines of text.
