If someone would just show this to my fellow students in class their Github commits and readme's would at least look good and be easy to read.
This is great stuff here.
Whoa, you can format commit messages with markdown?
No I was confused or too tired for a minute there I guess. I meant issues.
One of the things I love about markdown is that it takes zero time to learn and is accepted everywhere. But, I wish more platforms would help you through it. Reddit does a good, quick job, but their text box is just too small.
Great stuff. BTW, This may be of interest to you OP: http://blog.codinghorror.com/toward-a-better-markdown-tutorial/
What a great little reference. I think the interactive elements will be useful to the visual learners out there.
Nicely done! I was just pitching a client the other day on using Markdown for a static site-based blog instead of WordPress, which is kind of overpowered for what they need. I'll be sending this Monday morning when I follow up!
