Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax for writers. It allows you to quickly write structured content for the web, and have it seamlessly converted to clean, structured HTML. You can write regular markdown here and Jekyll will automatically convert it to a nice webpage.

Now it is time to learn some more useful features.

Here is some bold text

Here is a secondary heading

Here is a fourth level heading

Here’s a simple table:

Financial Model Actual Budget Forecast1
Total Assets 150 220 350
Total Liabilities 100 160 280
Shareholder’s Equity 50 60 70

How about good news from me?

It can also be centered!

good news

Here’s a code chunk:

var foo = function(x) {
  return(x + 5);
}
foo(3)

And here is the same code with syntax highlighting:

var foo = function(x) {
  return(x + 5);
}
foo(3)

And here is the same code yet again but with line numbers:

1
2
3
4
var foo = function(x) {
  return(x + 5);
}
foo(3)

Boxes

You can add notification, warning and error boxes like this:

Warning

Warning: This is a warning box.

Error
