Markdown in JavaScript (ES5) RichTextEditor control

When you format the word in Markdown format, you should add Markdown syntax to the word to indicate the words and phrases that looks different from each other.

Rich Text Editor supports markdown editing when the editorMode set as markdown and using both keyboard interaction and toolbar action, you can apply the formatting to text.

To create Rich Text Editor with Markdown editing feature, inject the MarkdownEditor module to the Rich Text Editor using the RichTextEditor.Inject(MarkdownEditor) method.

Supported Commands

The Javascript Markdown editor supports the following commands to format the markdown content:

Note: The title text is optional, if needed it can be given manually.
Table | Heading 1 | Heading 2 |
|---------|---------|
| Col A1 | Col A2 |
| Col B1 | Col B2 |
Create a table using the pipes and underscores as given in the syntax to create 2 x 2 table.

Escape tick marks supported Sample text content with **bold and **not bold** text can be in the same line.** In the syntax, the whole content is made as bold where the content not bold can be made as normal text by adding the bold syntax to the start and end of the respective text. Likewise you can do the same for various inline commands.
Escape Character \(any syntax) Escape any markdown syntax by prefix \ to the syntax.
Example:
\**Bold text**

Ampersand: & - &amp;
Less than: < - &lt;
Greater than: > - &gt;
For HTML entities, add & and ; to the front and back of the respective entities.

The above listed commands alone are supported in Syncfusion Markdown editor. For other unsupported commands, you can achieve using the HTML tags in Markdown editor. The foot notes, definitions, math, and check list markdown syntax are also not supported.

Markdown to HTML

The Rich Text Editor allows you to preview markdown changes immediately using preview. In this sample, the third-party library Marked is used to convert markdown into HTML content.

This sample demonstrates how to preview markdown changes in Rich Text Editor. Type or edit the display text, and apply format to view the preview of markdown. The actionComplete event can be used to convert Markdown to HTML.

In Rich Text Editor , you click the toolbar buttons to format the words and the changes are visible immediately. 
Markdown is not like that. When you format the word in Markdown format, you need to add Markdown syntax to the word to indicate which words 
and phrases should look different from each other

Rich Text Editor supports markdown editing when the editorMode set as **markdown** and using both *keyboard interaction* and *toolbar action*, you can apply the formatting to text.

We can add our own custom formation syntax for the Markdown formation, [sample link](https://ej2.syncfusion.com/home/).

The third-party library <b>Marked</b> is used in this sample to convert markdown into HTML content

Custom format

The Rich Text Editor allows you to customize the markdown syntax by overriding its default syntax. Configure the customized markdown syntax using the formatter property.

This sample demonstrates how to customize tags of markdown formatting.

For example, apply + to Unordered list, apply 1., 2., 3. to Ordered list, for bold, __, and for italic _.
