Good example of Markdown Cheatsheet?

I used to link to this cheatsheet: but today I’ve noticed that for some examples they put dots instead of spaces (in the sub-list example in particular), which means the examples can’t simply be copied and pasted.

So I’m wondering if anyone knows of any good cheatsheet we could link to? Ideally something with straightforward examples for beginners.

I just stumbled on this one the website also has extended syntax which is nice.


These are not really good but they seem simpler than most other list I have stumbled upon which often add HTML conversion and that may be confusing for beginners.

I think it might be time to create one ourselves.

One that also includes sections for every single plugin. (With a warning that it won’t work, unless the plugin is activated.)

I’m just too lazy to write one…

Most of these are under CC license, so I’ve been thinking about copying one and just change a few things here and there. That way it can be hosted on, which will be more stable than relying on someone else cheatsheet.

Eventually I’ve done my own:

Feedback is welcome, if you see something missing or any mistake in the cheat sheet please let me know.

I scanned the page and didn’t find explanation of markdown tables. Isn’t this support by default?

Good catch, I forgot about that, I’ll add it.

Thanks for making that cheat sheet. It's better than the other ones I found for succinctness.

I found it useful to run it through and remove the more complex options I won't use, like math and chemical notation.
