Gitbook Markdown syntax
A page showing the Markdown for all the basic and fancy options there are. Also compares it to Github's Markdown. This block is the page description.
Contrast this page to:
(shows up in the outline)
(also shows up in the outline)
(does not show up in the outline)
Headings can be used anywhere, including inside other blocks.
Code, Strikethrough, Link, internal link, anchor link, page link: Style Guide, page anchor link: Inline text formatting options, colored text, colored background, both colored, LaTeX:
These can be used anywhere.
- List with
- 2.can have
- changing list styles
Lists can be used anywhere, including inside other blocks. They can only include inline content and other (nested) lists.
A quote block
// a code block
code blocks <b style="some_css: 23px;" class="and other things"> also supports syntax highlighting</b>
These blocks can be used inside of Tabs. The code block can also be used in Expandables, but cannot have other blocks inside it. The quote block and infobox can have headings, inline content and lists inside it.
Embeds cannot be used inside of other blocks except the Tabs block, nor can other blocks be placed inside them.
text column, center-aligned
Select-option and files columns appear empty in Markdown. Avoid using them.
Tables cannot be used inside other blocks except the Tabs block, nor can other blocks be placed inside them. Inline content works inside of text columns only.
content of first tab
content of second tab
content of third tab
Tabs cannot be used inside other blocks. Tabs can have most other blocks inside them, except of other tabs, expandables, and API blocks.
Expandables cannot be inside other blocks. Expandables can have headings, lists, code blocks, and inline content inside them.
also supports captions
A Gitbook-specific drawing thing, generating SVGs. Likely useless when using Markdown.
Cannot be placed inside of other blocks except the Tabs block. That said, an inline variant is available which can go pretty much anywhere.
Cannot be used inside other blocks. Can only contain plain text. Unfortunately very tailored towards web APIs only.
