Testing your markdown

Testing • Asked by Jay Killeen

I see your markdown tables aren't being rendered as tables. I have the same problem :( Any idea how we get this fixed?

| Tables | Are | Cool |
| ------------- |:-------------:| -----:|
| col 3 is | right-aligned | $1600 |
| col 2 is | centered | $12 |
| zebra stripes | are neat | $1 |

I am using the html-pipeline gem and followed the guides in your cast.

Tables aren't actually part of the official Markdown spec, so you'll see that they don't work all the time. That said, the Github-markdown gem supports it as long as you're rendering as github formatted markdown. I believe mine is but I haven't tested it.

Are you running gfm: true as well?

Oh wow I didn't realize it wasn't official.

I do have the gfm: true on. I might have to dig a little deeper on this one then. Will let you know how I go.

Also, I posted this in slack, but for anyone else that sees this, I forgot that I'm using Redcarpet instead of html-pipeline anymore. It's because html-pipeline is a real pain to deploy to Heroku (or at least was).
