Table of Contents



Markdown is a way to style text on the web. You control the display of the document; formatting words as bold or italic, adding images, and creating lists are just a few of the things we can do with Markdown. Mostly, Markdown is just regular text with a few non-alphabetic characters thrown in, like # or *.

Titles ( or called tool tips ) in the links are optional.


Inline image: ![Moxile icon](mox.png "Moxile Icon"), title is optional.

Reference style image:

![Moxile icon][mox-icon]
[mox-icon]: mox.png "Moxile"

Inline code and Code block

Inline code are surround by backtick key. To create a block code, Indent each line by at least 1 tab, or 4 spaces:

	function greet() {
		console.log("Hello world");

Ordered List

Ordered lists are created using “1.” + Space:

1. first list item
2. second list item
3. third list item

Unordered List

Unordered list are created using “*” + Space:

* Unordered list item
* Unordered list item
* Unordered list item

Or using “-“ + Space:

- Unordered list item
- Unordered list item
- Unordered list item

Hard Linebreak

End a line with two or more spaces will create a hard linebreak, called <br /> in HTML. ( ⇧ + ↩ )

Above line ended with 2 spaces.

Horizontal Rule

Three or more asterisks or dashes:


This is H1

This is H2


# This is H1
## This is H2
### This is H3
#### This is H4
##### This is H5
###### This is H6

Extra Syntax


Footnotes work mostly like reference-style links. A footnote is made of two things: a marker in the text that will become a superscript number; a footnote definition that will be placed in a list of footnotes at the end of the document. A footnote looks like this:

That’s some text with a footnote.1


Wrap with 2 tilde characters ( ⌘ B ):


Fenced Code Blocks

Start with a line containing 3 or more backticks, and ends with the first line with the same number of backticks:

Fenced code blocks are like Stardard Markdown’s regular code
blocks, except that they’re not indented and instead rely on
a start and end fence lines to delimit the code block. After
the begin backtick, you could supply language information to
let Moxile highlight the code.
function hello() {
	console.write("Hello world");


A simple table looks like this:

First Header Second Header Third Header
Content Cell Content Cell Content Cell
Content Cell Content Cell Content Cell

If you wish, you can add a leading and tailing pipe to each line of the table:

First Header Second Header Third Header
Content Cell Content Cell Content Cell
Content Cell Content Cell Content Cell

Specify alignment for each column by adding colons to separator lines:

First Header Second Header Third Header
Left Center Right
Left Center Right

Task List

Task list is a GFM(github flavored markdown) extension

- [ ] uncomplete task item
- [x] completed task
- [x] another completed task
  1. And that’s the footnote.
