Quick Markdown Cheatsheet

A quick cheat sheet of the [Markdown]

Headings

Headings from h1 through h6 are constructed with a # for each level:

# h1 Heading
## h2 Heading
### h3 Heading
#### h4 Heading
##### h5 Heading
###### h6 Heading

Horizontal Rules

The HTML <hr> element is for creating a “thematic break” between paragraph-level elements. In markdown, you can create a <hr> with any of the following:

  • ___: three consecutive underscores
  • ---: three consecutive dashes
  • ***: three consecutive asterisks

Body Copy

Body copy written as normal, plain text will be wrapped with <p></p>Emphasis

Bold

For emphasizing a snippet of text with a heavier font-weight.

The following snippet of text is rendered as bold text.

**rendered as bold text**

Italics

For emphasizing a snippet of text with italics.

The following snippet of text is rendered as italicized text.

_rendered as italicized text_

Blockquotes

For quoting blocks of content from another source within your document.

Add > before any text you want to quote.

Add `>` before any text you want to quote.

Blockquotes can also be nested:

> Donec massa lacus, ultricies a ullamcorper in, fermentum sed augue. 
Nunc augue augue, aliquam non hendrerit ac, commodo vel nisi. 
>> Sed adipiscing elit vitae augue consectetur a gravida nunc vehicula. Donec auctor 
odio non est accumsan facilisis. Aliquam id turpis in dolor tincidunt mollis ac eu diam.
>>> Donec massa lacus, ultricies a ullamcorper in, fermentum sed augue. 
Nunc augue augue, aliquam non hendrerit ac, commodo vel nisi.

Lists

Unordered list

A list of items in which the order of the items does not explicitly matter.
You may use any of the following symbols to denote bullets for each list item:

* valid bullet
- valid bullet
+ valid bullet

For example

+ Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
+ Consectetur adipiscing elit
+ Integer molestie lorem at massa
+ Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet
+ Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
  - Phasellus iaculis neque
  - Purus sodales ultricies
  - Vestibulum laoreet porttitor sem
  - Ac tristique libero volutpat at
+ Faucibus porta lacus fringilla vel
+ Aenean sit amet erat nunc
+ Eget porttitor lorem

For example, `<section></section>` should be wrapped as "inline".

Indented code

Or indent several lines of code by at least four spaces, as in:

// Some comments
    line 1 of code
    line 2 of code
    line 3 of code
// Some comments
line 1 of code
line 2 of code
line 3 of code

Block code “fences”

Use “fences” ``` to block in multiple lines of code.

``` html
Sample text here...
```
Sample text here...

Tables

Tables are created by adding pipes as dividers between each cell, and by adding a line of dashes (also separated by bars) beneath the header. Note that the pipes do not need to be vertically aligned.

| Option | Description |
| ------ | ----------- |
| data   | path to data files to supply the data that will be passed into templates. |
| engine | engine to be used for processing templates. Handlebars is the default. |
| ext    | extension to be used for dest files. |

Right aligned text
Adding a colon on the right side of the dashes below any heading will right align text for that column.

| Option | Description |
| ------:| -----------:|
| data   | path to data files to supply the data that will be passed into templates. |
| engine | engine to be used for processing templates. Handlebars is the default. |
| ext    | extension to be used for dest files. |

Links

Basic link

[CSSReflex](http://www.cssreflex.com)

Add a title

[CSSReflex](https://www.cssreflex.com/ "Visit CSSReflex!")

Named Anchors

Named anchors enable you to jump to the specified anchor point on the same page. For example, each of these chapters:

# Table of Contents
  * [Chapter 1](#chapter-1)
  * [Chapter 2](#chapter-2)
  * [Chapter 3](#chapter-3)

will jump to these sections:

## Chapter 1 <a id="chapter-1"></a>
Content for chapter one.

## Chapter 2 <a id="chapter-2"></a>
Content for chapter one.

## Chapter 3 <a id="chapter-3"></a>
Content for chapter one.

Images

Images have a similar syntax to links but include a preceding exclamation point.

![Minion](http://octodex.github.com/images/minion.png)
![Alt text](http://octodex.github.com/images/stormtroopocat.jpg "The Stormtroopocat")

Like links, Images also have a footnote style syntax

![Alt text][id]

With a reference later in the document defining the URL location:

[id]: http://octodex.github.com/images/dojocat.jpg  "The Dojocat"
