Learn about Markdown files and Coda
Markdown is a lightweight markup language that can be used to add formatting elements to plaintext text documents. Many document editors and wikis support exporting their content as markdown. Exported markdown files usually end in .md.
Coda supports the basic syntax markdown flavor and as such does not support text colors, highlights and other extended features. The markdown importer supports selecting single or multiple .md files to import. If the exported files were originally zipped, please unzip them first before importing.
Initiate your Markdown import
To import from a Markdown file, type /import into the canvas. From the drop-down, select Markdown. Alternatively, you can just type /markdown directly into the canvas, then select the Markdown option.
In the resulting pop-up, click Select files. Once you’ve selected the files to import, just the prompts to complete the import. A new page will be created with the imported content for each file selected.
