is a text formatting syntax inspired on plain text email.
In the words of its creator, John Gruber:
The idea is that a Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it’s been marked up with tags or formatting instructions.
Markdown allows you to write using plain text, without a lot of markup or effort, and then export your writing as HTML. So instead of creating H tags, you can do just this:
# This is a Header 1
## This is a Header 2
To create emphasis, text is wrapped with one or two asterisks or underlines: Here is some *emphasis*. Here is more **emphasis**. You want to create a new paragraph? Just add a blank line. There are also ways to create lists, links, add images, and so forth.MultiMarkdown
is an extension of Markdown, adding features that let you quickly create tables, footnotes and citations, metadata, definition lists, and more.
