I have recently been working with the Bioconductor core team to add markdown capacity to the support site and am glad to let you know that it will appear shortly. I know it had been a wish list item for a long time and I am really excited I had the opportunity to implement it. Just to be clear, it will be markdown and not rmarkdown, although they are similar. What's markdown? If you don't already know here are some good tutorials.

Hope you enjoy! Lucas

You should now be able to write a post using markdown, if not you will need to clear your browser cache so a piece of javascript can be loaded. And as a bonus if you surround R code with ``` the syntax will be highlighted.

the first syntax highlighted post

merged_eset <- function(assay_data, pheno_data, experiment_data) {
    data.matrix(assay_data) %>%
    ExpressionSet(., pheno_data, experimentData = experiment_data)
}

Great work. It mostly works, but I've got some comments:

  • It seems like "Add comment" doesn't yet have markdown support (or at least the button).
  • Could we have line wrap in Markdown mode?
  • Quotes get converted to &quot; when I try to edit an existing post in Markdown mode, which is a bit annoying.

Hi Aaron, just an update. You should now see the markdown button in comments – just clear your browser cache if you don't. Still working on the line wraping and quotes issues.

Thank you for finding these issues Aaron! They all seem like pretty reasonable request and I will try and add them along with math support.

Hi Aaron, your request have been implemented – both the line wrap and quotes issues are fixed : )

ADD REPLYlink written 11 months ago by Lucas Schiffer220

Let me try writing a long line here. It's a long line, very long line, very very long line and, yes, it does wrap.

Mind blown. Thanks Lucas.

Thanks, this is great!

As was asked at the Bioc-Devel Meeting, could there be support for math markdown?

E.g.

  • $$ \int_{-\infty}^{+\infty}f(x)\;\mathrm{d}x $$
  • \[ \int_{-\infty}^{+\infty}f(x)\;\mathrm{d}x \]

Hi Wolfgang, just wanted you to know the mathjax library has been added and math markdown now works : )

ADD REPLYlink written 11 months ago by Lucas Schiffer220

This was a really great question and I think it would be useful for the support site. I will add it using the mathjax library.
