# Features ## Introduction **HedgeDoc** is a real-time, multi-platform collaborative markdown note editor. This means that you can write notes with other people on your **desktop**, **tablet** or even on the **phone**. You can sign-in via multiple auth providers like **Facebook**, **Twitter**, **GitHub** and many more on the [*homepage*](/). If you experience any *issues*, feel free to report it on [**GitHub**](https://github.com/hedgedoc/hedgedoc/issues). Or meet us on [**Matrix**](https://chat.hedgedoc.org) for dev-talk and interactive help. **Thank you very much!** ## Workspace ### Modes #### Desktop & Tablet <i class="fa fa-eye fa-fw"></i> View: See only the result. <i class="fa fa-columns fa-fw"></i> Both: See editor and result at the same time. <i class="fa fa-pencil fa-fw"></i> Edit: See only the editor. #### Mobile <i class="fa fa-eye fa-fw"></i> View: See only the result. <i class="fa fa-pencil fa-fw"></i> Edit: See only the editor. ### Night Mode When you are tired of a white screen and like a night mode, click on the little moon <i class="fa fa-moon-o"></i> and turn on the night view of HedgeDoc. The editor view, which is in night mode by default, can also be toggled between night and day view using the the little sun<i class="fa fa-sun-o fa-fw"></i>. ### Image Upload You can upload an image simply by clicking on the upload button <i class="fa fa-upload"></i>. Alternatively, you can **drag-n-drop** an image into the editor. Even **pasting** images is possible! This will automatically upload the image to **[imgur](https://imgur.com)**, **[Amazon S3](https://aws.amazon.com/s3/)**, **[Minio](https://minio.io)** or the **local filesystem** (depending on the instance's configuration), nothing to worry about. :tada: ![imgur](https://i.imgur.com/9cgQVqD.png) ### Share Notes If you want to share an **editable** note, just copy the URL. If you want to share a **read-only** note, simply press the publish button <i class="fa fa-share-square-o"></i> and copy the URL. ### Save a Note Currently, you can save to **Dropbox** <i class="fa fa-dropbox"></i> (depending on the instance's configuration) or save a Markdown <i class="fa fa-file-text"></i>, HTML or raw HTML <i class="fa fa-file-code-o"></i> file locally. ### Import Notes Similarly to the *save* feature, you can also import a Markdown file from **Dropbox** <i class="fa fa-dropbox"></i> (depending on the instance's configuration), or import content from your **clipboard** <i class="fa fa-clipboard"></i>, which can parse some HTML. :smiley: ### Permissions It is possible to change the access permission of a note through the little button on the top right of the view. There are four possible options: | | Owner read/write | Signed-in read | Signed-in write | Guest read | Guest write | |:------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ |:----------------:|:--------------:|:---------------:|:----------:|:-----------:| | <span class="text-nowrap"><i class="fa fa-leaf fa-fw"></i> **Freely**</span> | ✔ | ✔ | ✔ | ✔ | ✔ | | <span class="text-nowrap"><i class="fa fa-pencil fa-fw"></i> **Editable**</span> | ✔ | ✔ | ✔ | ✔ | ✖ | | <span class="text-nowrap"><i class="fa fa-id-card fa-fw"></i> **Limited**</span> | ✔ | ✔ | ✔ | ✖ | ✖ | | <span class="text-nowrap"><i class="fa fa-lock fa-fw"></i> **Locked**</span> | ✔ | ✔ | ✖ | ✔ | ✖ | | <span class="text-nowrap"><i class="fa fa-umbrella fa-fw"></i> **Protected**</span> | ✔ | ✔ | ✖ | ✖ | ✖ | | <span class="text-nowrap"><i class="fa fa-hand-stop-o fa-fw"></i> **Private**</span> | ✔ | ✖ | ✖ | ✖ | ✖ | **Only the owner of the note can change the note's permissions.** ### [Slide Mode](./slide-example) You can use a special syntax to organize your note into slides. After that, you can use the **[Slide Mode](./slide-example)** <i class="fa fa-tv"></i> to make a presentation. Visit the above link for details. To switch the editor into slide mode, set the [document type](./yaml-metadata#type) to `slide`. ## View ### Autogenerated Table of Contents You can look at the bottom right section of the view area, there is a *ToC* button <i class="fa fa-bars"></i>. Pressing that button will show you a current *Table of Contents*, and will highlight which section you're at. ToCs support up to **three header levels**. ### Permalink Every header will automatically add a permalink on the right side. You can hover and click <i class="fa fa-chain"></i> to anchor on it. ## Edit ### Editor Modes You can look in the bottom right section of the editor area, there you'll find a button with `SUBLIME` on it. When you click it, you can select 3 editor modes, which will also define your shortcut keys: - [Sublime](https://codemirror.net/demo/sublime.html) (default) - [Emacs](https://codemirror.net/demo/emacs.html) - [Vim](https://codemirror.net/demo/vim.html) ### Auto-Complete This editor provides full auto-complete hints in markdown. - Emojis: type `:` to show hints. - Code blocks: type ` ``` `, followed by another character to show syntax highlighting suggestions. - Headers: type `#` to show hint. - Referrals: type `[]` to show hint. - Externals: type `{}` to show hint. - Images: type `!` to show hint. ### Title The first **level 1 heading** (e.g. `# Title`) will be used as the note title. ### Tags Tags can be specified with [YAML metadata](./yaml-metadata#tags) at the **start** of the note. Those tags will show in your **history**. ```yml --- tags: features, cool, updated --- ``` ### [YAML Metadata](./yaml-metadata) You can provide advanced note information to set the browser behavior (visit above link for details): - robots: set web robots meta - lang: set browser language - dir: set text direction - breaks: set to use line breaks - GA: set to use Google Analytics - disqus: set to use Disqus - slideOptions: setup slide mode options ### Table of Contents Use the syntax `[TOC]` to embed a table of contents into your note. [TOC] ### Emoji You can type any emoji like this :smile: :smiley: :cry: :wink: > See full emoji list [here](https://www.webfx.com/tools/emoji-cheat-sheet/). ### ToDo List - [ ] ToDos - [x] Buy some salad - [ ] Brush teeth - [x] Drink some water - [ ] **Click my box** and see the source code, if you're allowed to edit! ### Code Block We support many programming languages, use the auto complete function to see the entire list. ```javascript= var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting"; alert(s); function $initHighlight(block, cls) { try { if (cls.search(/\bno\-highlight\b/) != -1) return process(block, true, 0x0F) + ' class=""'; } catch (e) { /* handle exception */ } for (var i = 0 / 2; i < classes.length; i++) { if (checkCondition(classes[i]) === undefined) return /\d+[\s/]/g; } } ``` If you want **line numbers**, type `=` after specifying the code block languagues. Also, you can specify the start line number. Like below, the line number starts from 101: ```javascript=101 var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting"; alert(s); function $initHighlight(block, cls) { try { if (cls.search(/\bno\-highlight\b/) != -1) return process(block, true, 0x0F) + ' class=""'; } catch (e) { /* handle exception */ } for (var i = 0 / 2; i < classes.length; i++) { if (checkCondition(classes[i]) === undefined) return /\d+[\s/]/g; } } ``` Or you might want to continue the previous code block's line number, use `=+`: ```javascript=+ var s = "JavaScript syntax highlighting"; alert(s); ``` Somtimes you have a super long text without breaks. It's time to use `!` to wrap your code: ```! When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back. ``` ### Blockquote Tags > Using the syntax below to specifiy your **name, time and color** to vary the blockquotes. > [name=ChengHan Wu] [time=Sun, Jun 28, 2015 9:59 PM] [color=#907bf7] > > Even support nested blockquotes! > > [name=Max Mustermann] [time=Sun, Jun 28, 2015 9:47 PM] [color=red] ### Externals #### YouTube {%youtube aqz-KE-bpKQ %} #### Vimeo {%vimeo 124148255 %} #### Gist {%gist schacon/4277%} #### SlideShare {%slideshare briansolis/26-disruptive-technology-trends-2016-2018-56796196 %} #### PDF **Caution: this might be blocked by your browser if not using an `https` URL.** Note that not all servers allow embedding their content.

It converts "HTML", but keeps intact partial entries like "xxxHTMLyyy" and so on. *[HTML]: Hyper Text Markup Language ## Revisions When changes are made to a note previous versions of the note are stored as `Revisions`, if you ever need to return to a previous save you can find all the note revisions by going to `Menu` -> `Revision`. The note history on the left displays each revision with a timestamp allowing you to quickly select a revision for the desired date and time. Selecting a revision on the left will display the revised note to the right, the revision will display the changes made with colorization to indicate additions/removals. In addition to browsing the revisions, you can download a selected note revision or revert the current note to the selected revision.
