Write Your Book’s Content

With your outline converted into a directory and file structure in the content/ directory, you’re now ready to begin authoring your book based on the outline you created. Continuing with the previous examples, you should have a book structure like we predicted on the Outline documentation:

  • Part 0 - Part Title/
    • Chapter 0 - Chapter Title.md
       # Chapter 0 - Chapter Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
    • Chapter 1 - Chapter Title.md
       # Chapter 1 - Chapter Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
    • Part 0 - Part Title_media/
      • [media files for part 0 go here]
  • Part 1 - Part Title/
    • Chapter 2 - Chapter Title.md
       # Chapter 2 - Chapter Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
    • Chapter 3 - Chapter Title.md
       # Chapter 3 - Chapter Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
       ## Section Title
      
       ### Subsection Title
      
    • Part 1 - Part Title_media/
      • [media files for part 1 go here]

Writing Text

In each of these markdown files (*.md), you can use GitHub’s markdown style to write your book under each chapeter, section, and subsection.

Here are a few examples for quick reference:

# This is an <h1> tag
## This is an <h2> tag
###### This is an <h6> tag

*This text will be italic*
_This will also be italic_

**This text will be bold**
__This will also be bold__

_You **can** combine them_

* Unordered List Item 1
* Unordered List Item 2
  * Unordered List Item 2a
  * Unordered List Item 2b

1. Ordered List Item 1
1. Ordered List Item 2
1. Ordered List Item 3
   1. Ordered List Item 3a
   1. Ordered List Item 3b

The above text would render like this:


This is an <h1> tag

This is an <h2> tag

This is an <h6> tag

This text will be italic This will also be italic

This text will be bold This will also be bold

You can combine them

  • Unordered List Item 1
  • Unordered List Item 2
    • Unordered List Item 2a
    • Unordered List Item 2b
  1. Ordered List Item 1
  2. Ordered List Item 2
  3. Ordered List Item 3
    1. Ordered List Item 3a
    2. Ordered List Item 3b

Media

As we saw above, the tanagra convert command will generate a directory for media in each book part directory. Place your media files for each respective book part in that media directory and then reference them using a local/relative reference. For example:

For an image in part 0 of your book…

  • ![Dogs doing magic!](Part 0 - Part Title_media/dogs_doing_magic.png)

For an image in part 1 of your book…

  • ![Sleight of paw magic](Part 1 - Part Title_media/sleight_of_paw.png)

Next Steps

When you’ve completed authoring the markdown of your book, you can compile your markdown into a rendered book.
