How To Do Some Simple Markdown Stuff in Gist
Add a Figure
The most annoying thing about putting a figure in these markdown Gists, if you have to upload that image separtely somewhere online. See here. Once you have the path to your image, the syntax is simple:
Add a Table
There are lots of ways to make tables. I find the easiest is to use TableGenerator.
|Manual||Chap 1||Chap 2||Chap 3||Chap 4||Chap 5||Chap 6||Chap 7||Total||%|
|Reads by RG Members||1,949||164||149||214||306||139||132||49||3,102||14%|
|Reads by non-members||10,921||1,164||834||1,104||3,166||808||1,039||380||19,416||86%|
|Full Text Reads||3,470||526||338||292||818||275||233||165||6,117|
The table above was created from this PubStats(Autosaved).xlsx excel file.

Using whatever references you see fit, follow these instructions for Citing and providing a list of references.

For example this
In the Riverscapes Consortium, all of our sites and documentation is in Git hosted markdown / Jekyll sites. Here is how you embed a gist in one of those pages and what it looks like.
