Call for Help

Over the years, I’ve gotten several requests for a good “cheat” sheet for MultiMarkdown. Partly because I’ve been busy, partly because I enjoy working on solving problems more than creating documentation, partly…. Well — let’s just say I haven’t done it yet.

So I’m asking for help.

Édouard Brière has created a github project for the Human Markdown Reference. It’s basically a cheat sheet for Markdown, translated into several languages. It doesn’t look like he has updated it in quite a while, based on github commit dates. But honestly, how much updating does a cheat sheet need?

I’m asking for help in forking this project to become the “official” cheat sheet for MultiMarkdown. It should be a concise guide that can be easily displayed on a variety of screens (e.g. computer, iPad, iPhone). It would be great if we could get it working in multiple languages, like the current one.

I’ve forked the github project here. I don’t have the time to commit to really maintain this, so I’ll probably be really lenient with accepting pull requests. If something gets accepted that isn’t good, then another commit can simply fix the problem.

For everyone who finds MultiMarkdown useful, and has wondered how they can contribute - here’s your chance! Help me make a cheat sheet that is really good!


PS> Once we get this ironed out, I will also include it in MultiMarkdown Composer and the iPhone/iPad app that has moved into beta testing today!
