Markdown is text to HTML conversion system that allows you to write in plain-text and then easily convert to HTML.
We've got our issue, Python track courses to be completed and 0:00 now let's add a description and make use of the markdown formatting. 0:04 Documentation for markdown is linked here, so let's take a look at it. 0:08 This link is also in the teacher's notes. 0:11 So it looks like there's an intro and some examples. 0:14 Let's see the examples. 0:20 We can see that using the double asterisk makes a word bold and 0:22 using one asterisk makes the word italic. 0:25 To create a link, you use brackets and the URL in parentheses. 0:28 There are additional examples of how to create 0:32 a numbered list and a bulleted list. 0:36 How to embed an image. 0:40 Use Headers and Quotes. 0:45 Style Code. 0:49 And also, how to create task lists and use emoji. 0:54 We'll use most of these in our issue. 0:57 Back in our issue body, 1:00 I'll add the equivalent of an h2 tag with two hashes and type TODO. 1:01 I can preview it to make sure it looks like I want it to. 1:07 Looks good. 1:12 Next, I'll add some italics. 1:13 I'll use a task list to check the remaining courses to be completed. 1:28 And I'll add some emoji to show my excitement. 1:58 There's also a link to the emoji cheat sheet in the teachers notes with a list of 2:09 all the emojis supported on GitHub. 2:12 Last by typing an at symbol followed a username, 2:15 you can notify a person to come and view the comment, also called an at mention. 2:18 I'll CC my friend Kyle since he said, 2:23 he was interested to know what courses I'm taking. 2:25 We'll Preview. 2:33 Awesome, it looks great and click Submit new Issue. 2:36 When I finish my courses, I'll check them off. 2:41 And eventually, close the issue when the tasks are all completed. 2:42 Also, cool is every issue has a unique URL that I can send to someone and go back and 2:47 reference even after the issue is closed. 2:51 Back in the Issues view, we can see that we've got our two open issues. 2:54 To review, 2:58 you can open an issue to create a note of something related to your repository and 2:59 we learned how to effectively use Markdown to style our text. 3:03 In the next video, 3:07 we'll talk about a best practice as a work flow to make changes to a project. 3:08
