Lists

In Markdown, items can be organized into ordered and unordered lists.

Ordered Lists

To create an ordered list, add numbers followed by periods.

1. 🌑 Preheat oven to 325°F
2. πŸͺ Drop cookie dough
3. ⏰ Bake for 15 min

The numbers don’t have to be in numerical order, but the list should start with the number one.

It will look like:

  1. 🌑 Preheat oven to 325°F
  2. πŸͺ Drop cookie dough
  3. ⏰ Bake for 15 min

Unordered Lists

To create an unordered list, add dashes -, asterisks *, or plus signs + in front of line items.

- 🎸 Play more music
- πŸ“š Read more books
- πŸ‘© Code more stuff

It will look like:

  • 🎸 Play more music
  • πŸ“š Read more books
  • πŸ‘© Code more stuff

Indent one or more items to create a nested list.

- First item
- Second item
- Third item
- Indented item
- Indented item
- Fourth item
