I know this is an old question, but I don't see a very detailed answer of the possibilities to strikethrough your text. So here's my answer: There are several ways to do it: <strike>strike</strike> → strike <del>strike</del> → strike <s>strike</s> → strike ~~strike~~ → ~~strike~~ ~strike~ → ~...

You can sort of fake it by using three backticks () to create a code block like this:  | Tables | Are | Cool | | ------------- |:-------------:| -----:| | col 3 is | right-aligned | $1600 | | col 2 is | centered |$12 | | zebra stripes | are neat | \$1 |  which creates this: | Tables | Are ...

A Google Docs document encodes everything in 'elements' within the Kix editor that it's all based on (it's closed source as basically this is the big trade secret, with which anyone else could run their own Docs service - which is a shame imo). You can access these elements with Google Apps Script, a variant of Javascript - but writing Markdown from the ...

I've hunted around the interwebs for just this solution, and HIGHLY recommend using Markdown Here. It is a browser extension for Chrome, Firefox and Safari that lets one toggle back-and-forth between Markdown and HTML. It's original use-case is for in composing e-mail, but it "works great" in Google Sites. Also, it supports TeX math formula, which for ...

You can convert a Markdown document to HTML, and copy/paste the HTML page (not the source) into a Google Drive document. It will retain most of the formatting including headings, lists, links, bold/italic/underline. The font, margins, and font sizes will not match the Google Drive defaults, and will look "out of place" compared to standard Google Drive ...

gdocs2md does a good job of converting Google documents to markdown, retaining headers, lists, tables, italics, bold, links and images. I use it to allow shared editing of documents, then export to markdown. Some care does need to be taken to use formatting in the Google document that maps well to markdown, but this isn't particularly difficult. I've also ...

Just use ~ to enclose whatever you want to strike. Here's a GIF. Just use ~ character at the start and the end in markdown. ~strike~

I'm also a big fan of Google Keep and Markdown. Therefore, I released today a new extension for Chrome which adds markdown support to Keep. You're welcome to give it a try: Mark It Down: Add markdown support to popular online services, like Google Keep.

That is done by using a code block with the "diff" syntax. The raw markdown would look something like this: One small step for diff -man +humankind  I've made a gist also that demonstrates the code (click "Raw" to view the markdown).

Jekyll does support rendering AsciiDoc via a plugin, however this isn't part of the default GitHub Pages Jekyll setup. GitHub lets you configure Jekyll plugins by adding them to the _config.yml file. However jekyll-asciidoc isn't on the list of supported plugins at this time. You could try submitting a request to GitHub to add jekyll-asciidoc to the list ...

I recommend Markdown Preview Is a simple Add-on that (just) makes previews of the markdown document you are creating. As far I understand, the main request is to preview it, so I think this is what you are searching for.

Preview Markdown Add-on for Google Docs gets my work done, it shows markdown preview in realtime in the sidebar with syntax highlighting. I like to use Google Docs and I love the simplicity of markdown even more, that is why I put together showdown.js and highlight.js to create this small add-on.

I'll rewrite @pajju's answer, because this was the path I chose and I think it works well, although I'll include examples. The source page is this: http://dvdotsenko.blogspot.in/2012/08/markdown-with-blogspotcom-and-bloggercom.html The basic idea is to write your markdown in HTML mode in a script tag: <script type="text/x-markdown"> #markdown ...

I like to test my Markdown locally before pushing somewhere viewable only through a URL. So I want a relative URL that I can use anywhere. GitHub now supports those. Your images subdirectory, assuming it's in the same directory as your Markdown file, doesn't need a slash at the beginning — try: markdown ![GitHub Logo](images/logo.png) instead of ...

There's no help document that I know, just a quick introduction the first time you open Stackedit in a new browser. However, for your question about Dropbox, I happen to know from using various apps with Dropbox, that if you want to publish to the root of Dropbox, just type "/". If you want to publish to a specific folder or subfolder on Dropbox, you would ...

If you look at the file details for the blue-icon Markdown files and the non-blue-icon files, they probably have different file types. Below are two .md files; the first was saved in Windows Notepad and uploaded, and the second was created in Google Docs. It seems like different programs save Markdown files different ways. It may just vary depending on the ...

The other answers didn't seem to work for me in an Azure DevOps\VSTS wiki (which purports to be 'markdown'). What did work was using '\' as an escape character i.e. \* Hello world, this sentence is not in an unordered list.

You can prevent a blank line from being merged with surrounding blank lines by pasting a Unicode space character on the line you want to keep. I tested this using U+202F (Narrow No-Break Space) copied from Character Map. On Windows, it's possible to enter this from the keyboard using Alt codes, but it requires changing a registry entry.
