Markdown is a simple formatting syntax for structuring text on the web. It is very popular with programmers because it is easy to write and readable to any audience. Let’s see how to add a table with Markdown.
To create a table in Markdown, you need to format it by column like this example:
| Column 1 | Column 2 | Column 3 | | :---------------- | :-----------------: | -----------: | | Put what you want | It will show nicely | Hello | | To help you | on the format | use Prettier |
This code example for markdown table will render:
|Column 1||Column 2||Column 3|
|Put what you want||It will show nicely||Hello|
|To help you||to auto-format||use Prettier|
