Bullets, Bold and Italics

Bold text can be show with Bold Text, Italics with Italic text. Bullets like so:

  • Bullet 1

  • Bullet 2

  1. Numbered Bullet 1

  2. Numbered Bullet 2


A note can be used to describe something not in the normal flow of the paragraph. This is an example of a note.


Using git commit after adding your files saves a “Snapshot” of them, so it’s very hard to lose your work if you commit often.

Code Blocks

This paragraph describes how to do Console Commands. When showing VPP commands it is recommended that the command be executed from the linux console as shown. The Highlighting in the final documents shows up nicely this way.

$ sudo bash
# vppctl show interface

The code-block construct is also used for code samples. The following shows how to include a block of “C” code.

#include <vlib/unix/unix.h>
abf_policy_t *
abf_policy_get (u32 index)
  return (pool_elt_at_index (abf_policy_pool, index));

Diffs are generated in the final docs nicely with “::” at the end of the description like so:
