Hello

Features

Introduction

CodiMD is a real-time, multi-platform collaborative markdown note editor. This means that you can write notes with other people on your desktop, tablet or even on the phone. You can sign-in via multiple auth providers like Facebook, Twitter, GitHub and many more on the homepage.

If you experience any issues, feel free to report it on GitHub. Or meet us on Matrix.org or Gitter for dev-talk and interactive help. Thank you very much!

Workspace

Modes

Desktop & Tablet

Edit: See only the editor. View: See only the result. Both: See both in split view.

Mobile

View: See only the result. Edit: See only the editor.

Night Mode:

When you are tired of a white screen and like a night mode, click on the little moon and turn on the night view of CodiMD.

The editor view, which is in night mode by default, can also be toggled between night and day view using the the little sun.

Image Upload:

You can upload an image simply by clicking on the camera button . Alternatively, you can drag-n-drop an image into the editor. Even pasting images is possible! This will automatically upload the image to imgur, Amazon S3, Minio or local filesystem, nothing to worry about. :tada: imgur

Share Notes:

If you want to share an editable note, just copy the URL. If you want to share a read-only note, simply press publish button and copy the URL.

Save a Note:

Currently, you can save to Dropbox or save an .md file locally.

Import Notes:

Similarly to the save feature, you can also import an .md file from Dropbox , or import content from your clipboard , and that can parse some html which might be useful :smiley:

Permissions:

It is possible to change the access permission to a note through the little button on the top right of the view. There are four possible options:

Owner read/write Signed-in read Signed-in write Guest read Guest write
Freely
Editable
Limited
Locked
Protected
Private

Only the owner of the note can change the note's permissions.

Embed a Note:

Notes can be embedded as follows:

<iframe width="100%" height="500" src="https://hackmd.io/features" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Slide Mode:

You can use a special syntax to organize your note into slides. After that, you can use the Slide Mode to make a presentation. Visit the above link for details.

View

Table of Contents:

You can look at the bottom right section of the view area, there is a ToC button . Pressing that button will show you a current Table of Contents, and will highlight which section you're at. ToCs support up to three header levels.

Permalink

Every header will automatically add a permalink on the right side. You can hover and click to anchor on it.

Edit:

Shortcut Keys:

Just like Sublime text, which is pretty quick and convenient.

For more infomation, see here.

Auto-Complete:

This editor provides full auto-complete hints in markdown. - Emojis: type : to show hints. - Code blocks: type ` and plus a character to show hint. <i hidden></i> - Headers: type#to show hint. - Referrals: type[]to show hint. - Externals: type{}to show hint. - Images: type!` to show hint.

Title:

This will take the first level 1 header as the note title.

Tags:

Using tags as follows, the specified tags will show in your history.

tags: features cool updated

YAML Metadata

You can provide advanced note information to set the browser behavior (visit above link for details): - robots: set web robots meta - lang: set browser language - dir: set text direction - breaks: set to use line breaks - GA: set to use Google Analytics - disqus: set to use Disqus - slideOptions: setup slide mode options

ToC:

Use the syntax [TOC] to embed table of content into your note.

[TOC]

Emoji

You can type any emoji like this :smile: :smiley: :cry: :wink:

See full emoji list here.

ToDo List:

  • [ ] ToDos
    • [x] Buy some salad
    • [ ] Brush teeth
    • [x] Drink some water

Code Block:

We support many programming languages, use the auto complete function to see the entire list. javascript= var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting"; alert(s); function $initHighlight(block, cls) { try { if (cls.search(/\bno\-highlight\b/) != -1) return process(block, true, 0x0F) + ' class=""'; } catch (e) { /* handle exception */ } for (var i = 0 / 2; i < classes.length; i++) { if (checkCondition(classes[i]) === undefined) return /\d+[\s/]/g; } }

If you want line numbers, type = after specifying the code block languagues. Also, you can specify the start line number. Like below, the line number starts from 101: javascript=101 var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting"; alert(s); function $initHighlight(block, cls) { try { if (cls.search(/\bno\-highlight\b/) != -1) return process(block, true, 0x0F) + ' class=""'; } catch (e) { /* handle exception */ } for (var i = 0 / 2; i < classes.length; i++) { if (checkCondition(classes[i]) === undefined) return /\d+[\s/]/g; } }

Or you might want to continue the previous code block's line number, use =+

var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting";
alert(s);

Somtimes you have a super long text without breaks. It's time to use ! to wrap your code.

When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back.

Blockquote Tags:

Using the syntax below to specifiy your name, time and color to vary the blockquotes. [name=ChengHan Wu] [time=Sun, Jun 28, 2015 9:59 PM] [color=#907bf7]

Even support the nest blockquotes! [name=ChengHan Wu] [time=Sun, Jun 28, 2015 10:00 PM] [color=red]

MathJax

You can render LaTeX mathematical expressions using MathJax, as on math.stackexchange.com:

The Gamma function satisfying $\Gamma(n) = (n-1)!\quad\forall n\in\mathbb N$ is via the Euler integral

$$ x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}. $$

$$ \Gamma(z) = \int_0^\infty t^{z-1}e^{-t}dt\,. $$

More information about LaTeX mathematical expressions here.

UML Diagrams

Sequence Diagrams

You can render sequence diagrams like this:

Alice->Bob: Hello Bob, how are you?
Note right of Bob: Bob thinks
Bob-->Alice: I am good thanks!
Note left of Alice: Alice responds
Alice->Bob: Where have you been?

Flow Charts

Flow charts can be specified like this: ```flow st=>start: Start e=>end: End op=>operation: My Operation op2=>operation: lalala cond=>condition: Yes or No?

st->op->op2->cond cond(yes)->e cond(no)->op2 ```

Graphviz

digraph hierarchy {

                nodesep=1.0 // increases the separation between nodes

                node [color=Red,fontname=Courier,shape=box] //All nodes will this shape and colour
                edge [color=Blue, style=dashed] //All the lines look like this

                Headteacher->{Deputy1 Deputy2 BusinessManager}
                Deputy1->{Teacher1 Teacher2}
                BusinessManager->ITManager
                {rank=same;ITManager Teacher1 Teacher2}  // Put them on the same level
}

Blockquotes

Blockquotes can also be nested...

...by using additional greater-than signs right next to each other...

...or with spaces between arrows.

Lists

Unordered

  • Create a list by starting a line with +, -, or *
  • Sub-lists are made by indenting 2 spaces:
    • Marker character change forces new list start:
    • Ac tristique libero volutpat at
    • Facilisis in pretium nisl aliquet
    • Nulla volutpat aliquam velit
  • Very easy!

Ordered

  1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet
  2. Consectetur adipiscing elit
  3. Integer molestie lorem at massa

  4. You can use sequential numbers...

  5. ...or keep all the numbers as 1.

  6. feafw

  7. 332

  8. 242

  9. 2552

  10. e2

Start numbering with offset:

  1. foo
  2. bar

Code

Inline code

Indented code

// Some comments
line 1 of code
line 2 of code
line 3 of code

Block code "fences"

Syntax highlighting

var foo = function (bar) {
  return bar++;
};

console.log(foo(5));

Abbreviations

This is an HTML abbreviation example. It converts "HTML", but keeps intact partial entries like "xxxHTMLyyy" and so on.
