Markdown Basics
Getting the Gist of Markdown’s Formatting Syntax This page offers a brief overview of what it’s like to use Markdown. The syntax page provides complete, detailed documentation for every feature, but Markdown should be very easy to pick up simply by looking at a few examples of it in action. The examples on this page are written in a before/after style, showing example syntax and the HTML output produced by Markdown. It’s also helpful to simply try Markdown out; the Dingus is a web application that allows you type your own Markdown-formatted text and translate it to XHTML. Note: This document is itself written using Markdown; you can see the source for it by adding ‘.text’ to the URL. Paragraphs, Headers, Blockquotes A paragraph is simply one or more consecutive lines of text, separated by one or more blank lines. Markdown offers two styles of headers: Setext and atx. Blockquotes are indicated using email-style ‘>’ angle brackets. Markdown: Output: Phrase Emphasis Lists * Candy. * Gum. * Booze. ! !

GitHub Flavored Markdown - User Documentation GitHub uses "GitHub Flavored Markdown," or GFM, across the site--in issues, comments, and pull requests. It differs from standard Markdown (SM) in a few significant ways, and adds some additional functionality. If you're not already familiar with Markdown, take a look at Markdown Basics. If you'd like to know more about features that are available in issues, comments, and pull request descriptions, such as task lists, read Writing on GitHub. Differences from traditional Markdown Implicit tag names Even with such a powerful abbreviation engine, which can expand large HTML structures from short abbreviation, writing tag names may be very tedious. In many cases you can skip typing tag names and Emmet will substitute it for you. For example, instead of div.content you can simply write .content and expand it into <div class="content"></div>. When you expand abbreviation, Emmet tries to grab parent context, e.g. the HTML element, inside which you’re expanding the abbreviation. If the context was grabbed successfully, Emmet uses its name to resolve implicit names: As you can see from the example above, Emmet looks at the parent tag name every time you’re expanding the abbreviation with an implicit name.

Create a Back Button - Get a Back Button for Your Web Page Create a back button right on your Web page. This button, when clicked, will take the reader back to the page they were on before they came to your page, wherever they came from. This back button code works just like your browser's back button. It reads from your browser's history and sends the reader back to whence they came. Basic Back Button Code The basic code for a back button link is a very simple JavaScript.

Managing a statistical analysis project – guidelines and best practices In the past two years, a growing community of R users (and statisticians in general) have been participating in two major Question-and-Answer websites: In that time, several long (and fascinating) discussion threads where started, reflecting on tips and best practices for managing a statistical analysis project. They are: 10 Essential Sublime Text Plugins for Full-Stack Developers When I started with web development a few years ago, Vim was my first choice of text editor. It was easy to work with and I could get the basics done without much hassle. Also, many developers like terminal based text editors because they get the same environment in both their local development machines and remote servers. In spite of the “Vim vs Emacs” debate out there, about a year ago I decided to try out a native text editor and Twitter was abuzz with one of them (no prizes for the guessing which one.) The creators of Sublime Text say it’s a text editor you’ll fall in love with and, having worked with it for almost a year now, I must say I completely agree with them. It has an untimed trial, and a licence for a single user costs $70.

Ruby Warrior 簡單版攻略 - Ruby - Rails Fun!!

For a certain class of clustering algorithms (in particular k-means, k-medoids and Expectation-maximization algorithm), there is a parameter commonly referred to as k that specifies the number of clusters to detect. Other algorithms such as DBSCAN and OPTICS algorithm do not require the specification of this parameter; hierarchical clustering avoids the problem altogether.

Starting a web application from scratch can be a boring, time-consuming task. Paul Irish's HTML5 Boilerplate project is an exceptional starting point for creating a website of any kind. HTML5 Boilerplate provides an incredibly useful set of CSS, JavaScript, image, and HTML files to help you kickstart your HTML5-powered web application. Still, HTML5 Boilerplate may be a bit more than you need if you already have a boilerplate of your own; that doesn't mean that HTML5 Boilerplate can't be useful though. Here are 7 CSS snippets you can take from HTML5 Boilterplate and incorporate in your own application.

What is Spec Driven Development Disclaimer: this is a living document while this approach is tested and made more concrete Over the past couple months I have been talking about something I’ve called Spec Driven Development, or rather a software development ideal where your application is built in two distinct phases: The creation of a SpecDevelopment of code to match the Spec Cooperation between Referees and Authors Increases Peer Review Accuracy Peer review is fundamentally a cooperative process between scientists in a community who agree to review each other's work in an unbiased fashion. Peer review is the foundation for decisions concerning publication in journals, awarding of grants, and academic promotion. Here we perform a laboratory study of open and closed peer review based on an online game.
