Lightweight Markup: Markdown, reStructuredText, MediaWiki, AsciiDoc, Org-mode – Hyperpolyglot

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/03

A great table with comparison of various constructs in Lightweight Markup: Markdown, reStructuredText, MediaWiki, AsciiDoc, Org-mode – Hyperpolyglot

It works much better than the examples in Lightweight markup language – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (which does include more languages).

As I’ve switched to “all source – including docs – should be in text format” years ago, I’m a heavy markdown user, but also use reStructuredText, so this table is of great help.

Reminder to self: reStructuredText does not support strikethrough out of the box.
