Textile

Textile is a lightweight markup language originally developed by Dean Allen and billed as a “humane web text generator”. We have chosen Textile as the preferred way of marking up content – in lieu of the traditional WYSIWYG editor – because of many advantages (it’s clean, portable, lightweight, readable). While at first it might seem a little daunting, once you spend a little time with it it’s actually very intuitive. There is a reason tech giants like Google, Github & Stack Overflow incorporated lightweight markup in their web apps!

Here’s how it works.
