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:
After I made the above, a collleague noted that you can simply drag or paste an image into the "Comment" window in the Gist, and it will immediately upload and make a URL (and markdown you need) that you can copy and paste into your markdown gist. You do not even need to proceed with making the comment to get the Gist. Really quick and slick ;).
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.
Make a Hyperlink
Always provide links to references and webpages where possible to make your resourcs most useful. The syntax is to put square brackets around the text you want to have a hyperlink followed by the URL in parentheses. For example:
[My link](http://google.com) produces My link.
Embed a Video
This provides a link to this video:
However, this is a more conenient way of providing a thumbnail of that same video using http://embedyoutube.org/:
[![Video Link](http://img.youtube.com/vi/eVAG6Tlg3HA/0.jpg)](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVAG6Tlg3HA "")
Using whatever references you see fit, follow these instructions for Citing and providing a list of references.

Embed Vignette Gist in another page
The four most common places we will refer to Gists from other pages are GitHub-hosted pages, GitHub Issue Boards, Basecamp and Weebly.
For each of these the first step is to copy the embed code from the Gist page:
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.
