Jitterted's Guide to Leanpub Formatting
Last updated on 2015-04-26
About the Book
This book, and its associated GitHub public repo, has lots of examples that show you how to do formatting where the Leanpub Manual leaves off, or doesn't cover certain cases. I always believe that the more examples, the better. The GitHub repo that has the source Markdown text can be found here: https://github.com/tedyoung/leanpub-formatting
