Markdown is the most popular way to format plain text.
Add common characters like asterisks and dashes to text, much like how you might format a quick store list in your notes app or add emphasis to a word in a text message, to structure and style your writing with Markdown. It’s more universal than rich text formatting (which depends on the program you’re using), easier to read than HTML.
Mostly, write as normal. Most text doesn’t need formatting; type your words and sentences as you would anywhere. Press
Return twice after paragraphs to make sure there’s a blank line between them, otherwise there’s nothing else to think about.
When you need to format text, the core things to remember are to add hash signs before text for headers, single underscores around text for italics, double underscores for bold, and brackets+parenthesis for links. Here are the core markdown formatting options to remember:
`this`. Or, to add full lines of code, indent the text with a tab or four spaces.
# This; use 2 hash signs for H2, 3 for H3, and so on.
That’s the basics. For more advanced Markdown formatting, check John Gruber’s original Markdown documentation for more examples.
