The book


From text files over presentations to blogs, it can all be done using mostly Markdown. And it is easy, too!

This book introduces the reader to the Markdown syntax, teaches a few tricks on output styling and explains the various tools and frameworks that support Markdown.

All this is done using an imaginary monitoring tool called "GoodTool", which - by the end of the book - has a README file, a website, a blog, a wiki and much more. It is the common theme helping the reader understand the different use cases.

Finally, the book ends in a chapter explaining the "Making Of Markdown By Example" - yes, this book is not only about Markdown, it was also written in Markdown!
