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.
