Use Markdown

Lowcoder supports you using the lightweight markup language Markdown to format texts in your app, such as changing the font size, inserting code, and adding a list. You can also embed HTML-formatted text in Markdown for more styling options.

Use Markdown in Text and Table components.

  • Text: Use Markdown for the input text.

  • Table: Use Markdown for column type.

Markdown basics

All Markdown syntax is valid in Lowcoder.

  • Headings: Use hashtag (#) before heading. More hashtags, lower heading level.

  • Paragraphs: Use a blank line to separate texts into paragraphs.

  • Line breaks: Add at least two whitespaces at the end of a line and press Enter to start a new line.

  • Emphasis: Use single asterisk (∗) before and after text to convert it to italic text, double asterisks (∗∗) for bold text, and triple asterisks (∗∗∗) for italic bold text.

  • Blockquotes: Use the closing angle bracket (>) to create a blockquote.

  • Lists: Use hyphen (-), asterisk (∗), or plus sign (+) followed by a whitespace to create an unordered list, and use numbers followed by a period (.) to create an ordered list.

  • Code: Use backticks (`) before and after code to denote `code` in plain text, and three backticks (```) to present ```code block```.

  • Horizontal rules: Use at least three asterisks (∗∗∗), hyphens (---), or underscores (_ _ _) at the beginning of a line to create a horizontal rule.

  • Links: Use square brackets ([]) for the display text and parenthesis (()) for the link address. Note that no space should be inbetween. For example, [Lowcoder](

  • Images: Use an exclamation mark (!) to start an image shiinsertion, and then use square bracket ([]) for the alternative text and parenthesis (()) for the link address or source path. The caption can follow the parentheses or start at a new line.

  • Escaping characters: Use backslash (\) to display the special symbols that Markdown uses. For instance, to print `` in plain text, you should use \`\` in Markdown.

For more information, see Markdown guide.

GFM extension

You can also use GitHub Flavored Markdown (GFM) extensions for additional syntax.

  • Footnotes: Use caret (^) and number in square brackets ([]) to insert footnotes. For more information, see Footnotes.

  • Strikethrough lines: Use double tilde (~~) before and after text to add strikethrough lines. For more information, see Styling text.

  • Tables: Use hyphens (-) separated by the vertical bar (|) to create the header row of a table, and continue using the vertical bar to separate content in cells. For more information, see Tables (extension).

  • Task lists: Use a whitespace in square brackets ([ ]) within the list format to create task lists. To mark a task completed, replace the whitespace with the letter x. For more information, see Task lists.

HTML support

In Lowcoder, you can use most HTML tags and properties. For more information, see Embed HTML in Markdown.

For security reasons, a few HTML tags including iframe and script are not permitted in Lowcoder.
