Markdown not working in the README on Github?


Just put, for example, in the README file the # symbol before a title that Github automatically transforms to h1 or you have to configure or download something for Markdown to work.


The file must have a .md extension for the GitHub engine to know that it should process Markdown. You don't need to do anything else except use Markdown's special markup. In fact the # turns into <H1> in HTML.
