Using Markdown in PagureÂś

Pagure uses Markdown syntax highlighting as the base for formatting comments in issues, pull requests, and in Markdown files in repositories. For basic formatting, Pagure follows common Markdown formatting, but it also has some unique syntax for more advanced formatting. This help page helps demonstrate how to use Markdown in Pagure.

Pagure relies on the Markdown python module to do the conversion. It has enabled a few extensions:

README files can also rely on:

While comments use:

CodeÂś

You can highlight parts of a line as code or create entire code blocks in your Markdown documents. You can do this with the backtick character (`). Text inside of backticks will not be formatted.

When running the program for the first time, use `superman --initialize`.

To format multiple lines of code into its own block, you can wrap the text block with four tilde (~) characters

Tagging usersÂś

You can tag other users on Pagure to send them a notification about an issue or pull request. To tag a user, use the @ symbol followed by their username. Typing the @ symbol in a comment will bring up a list of users that match the username. The list searches as you type. Once you see the name of the person you are looking for, you can click their name to automatically complete the tag.

@jflory7, could you please review this pull request and leave feedback?

Tagging issues or pull requestsÂś

In a comment, you can automatically link a pull request or issue by its number. To link it, use the # character followed by its number. Like with tagging users, Pagure will provide suggestions for issues or pull requests as you type the number. You can select the issue in the drop-down to automatically tag the issue or pull request.

If you need to tag an issue or pull request that is outside of the current project, you are also able to do this. For cross-projects links, you can tag them by typing <project name>#id or <username>/<project name>#id.

EmojiÂś

Pagure natively supports emoji characters. To use emoji, you can use two colons wrapped around the emoji keyword (:emoji:). Typing a colon by itself will bring up a list of suggested emoji with a small preview. If you see the one you are looking for, you can click it to automatically complete the emoji.
