Using the editor on Codú platform

The editor you use to create your articles on Codú platform is not just a simple text box. It has a lot of feature that you can use to take your writing to next level

Getting Started with Markdown and custom elements

Markdown is easy to learn and use. To get started, all you need is a text editor and a basic understanding of the syntax. Here are some of the most common Markdown syntax elements:


Headings are used to organize content and create a hierarchy. In Markdown, headings are created by adding one or more hash symbols (#) before the text.

# Heading 1
## Heading 2
### Heading 3

Bold and Italic Text

To make text bold, surround it with two asterisks. To make it italic, surround it with one asterisk.

**Bold text**
*Italic text*


To create an unordered list, start each line with a hyphen (-) or an asterisk (*). To create an ordered list, start each line with a number followed by a period.

- Item 1
- Item 2
- Item 3

1. Item 1
2. Item 2
3. Item 3


To create a link, surround the link text with square brackets and the URL with parentheses.

[Link text](


To add an image, use the same syntax as a link but include an exclamation point before the square brackets.

![Alt text](url/image.jpg)

Code Blocks

To add a code block, surround the code with three backticks.

function helloWorld() {
console.log("Hello, world!");
