# Aeolipile: your code and formula on Steem

Steem is a blockchain-based rewards platform for publishers to monetize content and grow community. However, the Steemit editor does not provide advanced markdown features, like code highlight, mathematical notation, etc. The lack makes it hard to write technical posts on Steem.

So I made this webpage to render Steem discussion with more markdown syntax enabled. Then we can use Steem for some...boring contents.

## Usage

You can easily append author name and post link after https://heyeshuang.github.io/aeolipile/#/, like this:

https://heyeshuang.github.io/aeolipile/#/@USERNAME/PERMLINK/

Similar with the Steemit URL. And you can simply add this link before your post, just like me. :wink:

### Features

With markdown-it, you can get almost every feature for GitHub Flavored Markdown .

#### Code!

Place your code between  like this, then you'll get a codeblock:

require 'redcarpet'
markdown = Redcarpet.new("Hello World!")
puts markdown.to_html

#### Math!

You can write TeX between ` tags.

$\hat{y}= \sigma(\omega^T X+b)=\frac{1}{1+e^{-(\omega^T X+b)}}$
