What is Markdown?
Markdown is a lightweight markup language that you can use to add formatting elements to plaintext text documents. Created by John Gruber in 2004, Markdown is now one of the world’s most popular markup languages.
Markdown file always has an extension of .md or .markdown
There are many tools available online for previewing the markdown, One of them is created by me which is available on our site > Markdown Previewer
To give a heading in Markdown we use the '#' symbol. In markdown, the heading is divided into six different types as in HTML from h1 to h6.
# PrahladInala - H1 ## PrahladInala - H2 ### PrahladInala - H3 #### PrahladInala - H4 ##### PrahladInala - H5 ###### PrahladInala - H6
PrahladInala - H1 =============== PrahladInala - H2 ---------------
We can use ** OR __ to make our text bold.
**Prahlad Inala** __Prahlad Inala__
We can use * OR _ to make our text Italic.
*Prahlad Inala* _Prahlad Inala_
We use greater than symbol to write Blockquotes.
> We can change our lives. We can do, have, and be exactly what we wish.
We can use ` OR ``` to write code
`python print("hello") `
We use numbers to write ordered lists
1. First item 2. Second item 1. First SubItem 2. Second SubItem 3. Third item
We use * / - and space to write unordered lists
- First item - Second item - First SubItem * Second SubItem - Third item * First item * Second item - First SubItem * Second SubItem * Third item
We use --- to draw a horizontal Line
