Lists9:24 with Wade Christensen
Lists are a great way to organize content. We'll use Markdown to format both numbered (ordered) and bulleted (unordered) lists. We'll also see how to combine list formatting, and cover a few formatting quirks that can be surprising when you're getting started.
Starter code for this video:
# Markdown Basics ## Headlines, Paragraphs, and Basic Formatting ### Headlines Type a single hash (AKA pound symbol) and a space to create the largest or first-level heading. A second-level heading uses two hashes next to each other followed by a space and text. The rest of the headline levels just add another hash. #### Heading Level 4 ##### Heading Level 5 ###### Heading Level 6 ### Paragraphs and Line Breaks We create paragraphs by typing the way we would in any other program. Just hit return twice to start another paragraph. Where you see empty space between blocks of text in your Markdown document, you will see empty space separating those blocks of text in your formatted HTML document. #### Line Breaks You don’t always want that space that appears between one line of text and another: for example, lines of poetry or song lyrics don't have spaces between them. To add just a line break without a space, type two spaces at the end of a line, then press return once. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where I love you directly without problems or pride: I love you like this because I don't know any other way to love Neruda, Pablo. "Sonnet 17" The Poetry of Pablo Neruda, edited by Ilan Stavans, translated by Mark Eisner, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2005, p. 514. ### Emphasis and Bolding #### Italics Emphasis can be added with either the asterisk or the underscore characters. This *works*, and this _works_ too #### Bolding Bolding is easy too. Just add an extra asterisk or underscore. This **works**, and this __works__ too #### Bolding and Emphasis Together You can even bold and italicize text like ***this*** or ___this___ ### Blockquotes A blockquote sets text apart from the rest of the document. It indicates that the text is quoted from another source. You format a blockquote using the greater than symbol. If you want a blockquote to span multiple paragraphs, add the greater than symbol to the line between paragraphs too. > Markdown is intended to be as easy-to-read and easy-to-write as is feasible. > > Readability, however, is emphasized above all else. 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. — John Gruber ### Horizontal Rule OK, that’s a good start. We can separate this from our next section with a horizontal rule, which is just a line used to separate sections of a document. You can use three or more underscores, asterisks, or hyphens. I prefer hyphens. ___ *** ---
