While you still can't use tags (like <del>), in February 2014, Trello added the ability to cross out text using ~~foo~~.

You can give StackEdit a try. It has a nice integration with Google Drive. Once you import/export a Markdown document from/to Google Drive, you can open it later directly from Google Drive since StackEdit is integrated as a third party editor/viewer application. You can find StackEdit as a Chrome application as well on the Web Store. NOTE: I'm the ...

I just used the following syntax <del> ... </del> successfully on GitHub in an issue description.

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~ → ~...

Use double tildes to ~~strike~~ text in markdown!

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 ...

In response to the answer above: As of January 30th, 2013, GitHub now allow relative links. Make sure that you append ?raw=true to the end of the URL, though. Here is an example: ![Image](../blob/master/public_html/img/nokia.png?raw=true) Due to the way GitHub handles URL's, if you do not append ?raw=true to the source URL your browser will attempt to ...

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 ...

Unfortunately, no. There does not appear to be any formatting options available, other than things like lists and note color.

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 ...

You cannot disable Markdown in card descriptions in Trello. However, Markdown allows you to use backslash escapes to generate literal characters which would otherwise have special meaning in Markdown’s formatting syntax. For example, if you wanted to surround a word with literal underscores, you can use backslashes before the underscores, like this: \...

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 ...

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.

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~

You say you're a programmer, so this answer assumes you'd be comfortable with a little "roll your own" approach. Google drive supports scripts: http://www.google.com/script/start/ So, you could create a little Showdown viewer that you point to your markdown files (as URLs).

Download and install the Google Drive software. It's for Windows and Mac at the moment, a version for Linux is in the making. The software will create a folder on your computer that syncs with Google Drive. If you open a file in it, it will be opened in the appropriate installed program. Google Drive documents that you open will open in the browser. This ...

You need to use %20 to represent spaces. Here is the correct code: [Click here to open a template email](mailto:abc@xyz.com?Subject=Subject%20Text&Body=Thank%20you)

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 ...

Use HTML entities style to insert special characters. For example writing &#955; will produce a λ See this Wikipedia page for the complete reference.

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).

Instead of using the HTML entity, you can insert the character itself in Trello list titles, card titles and descriptions (and even comments, which do not support Markdown). Usually, when I need a special character, I do a web search to find the a website that uses the sought character, copy it (CTRL/CMD+C) and paste it where I need it (CTRL/CMD+V). That's ...

Markdown is a strict superset of HTML, so you should be able to just make the HTML tag explicitly and set the size how you want. See http://www.mediacollege.com/internet/html/image-tag.html.

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.

This markdown cheat sheet includes tables: https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/wiki/Markdown-Cheatsheet - but it doesn't appear to work in Trello.

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 ...

You can use https://sites.google.com/site/gashackja/markdownsiteeditor -- And you can install it for your own use: get a copy of Markdown Site Editor. adding the libraries. get the Showdown library by looking it up (ID: M6WggW1B7uEj1Nu0p7S6Pf-Mffa6w-w2J) make sure to change the identifier to Showdown (instead of GASShowdown) get the Bootstrap library (...

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 ...
