Markdown Tips & Resources

What is Markdown?

Markdown is a text markup language to allow plain text to convert to styled text using common conventions, such as italics or strikethrough. It’s just a shortcut to edit text (bolding, italicizing, underlining, etc.) without having to click the buttons on a toolbar. We use Markdown to edit the Sourcegraph Handbook.
