Texy Basics

Texy allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, which then converts to valid HTML for viewing in browser.


Paragraphs in Texy are just one or more lines of consecutive text followed by one or more blank lines.


You can create a heading by creating underline from three or more *, = or - symbols after your heading text.

Styling text

You can make text bold or italic.

Use single backticks to format text in a special monospace format. Everything within the backticks appear as-is, with no other special formatting. Example: **not bold** words.

You can create an inline link by wrapping link text in quotes and then adding the link after colon: Click here.

Or you can use Markdown synta, i.e. wrapping link text in brackets and link in parentheses Click here.


You can indicate blockquotes with a >.

Unordered lists

You can make an unordered list by preceding list items with either a * or a -.

Ordered lists

You can make an ordered list by preceding list items with a number.

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
  3. Item 3

Nested lists

You can create nested lists by indenting list items by two spaces or tabs.

  1. Item 1
    1. A corollary to the above item.
    2. Yet another point to consider.
  2. Item 2
    • A corollary that does not need to be ordered.
      • This is indented four spaces, because it's two spaces further than the item above.
      • You might want to consider making a new list.
  3. Item 3

Code formatting

You can use frames /-- to format text as its own distinct block.
