The template comes pre-installed with a versatile Jekyll plugin called Jekyll Spaceship.
The plugin has many useful features beyond the standard capabilities of Markdown, including:
  • Advanced tables
    • Row/col merging
    • No header
    • Individual cell alignment
    • Markdown within cells
  • Math notation with LaTeX, MathML, or AsciiMath
  • Diagramming with PlantUML or Mermaid
  • Rich media embeds
    • Youtube
    • Vimeo
    • DailyMotion
    • Spotify
    • SoundCloud
  • GitHub-flavored emoji, e.g. :+1 ->
See Jekyll Spaceship's documentation for examples of how to easily do all of this right in your Markdown.
