Learn all about the Markdown Guide.

The Markdown Guide was born out of frustration with existing Markdown references that are needlessly verbose. This website is designed to be a concise, barebones guide.


This is an open-source project, and your contributions are welcome. The repository is hosted on GitHub. See the README for instructions and guidelines.
