Markdown Metadata, It's META-TASTIC

If you ever have needed to include meta with your markdown, take a look at the yaml metadata you can add to markdown. The only one that I've found that isn't supported by everything is tags. Otherwise everything just seems to work great

You can also do tags like this

  - tag 1
  - tag 2

Using metadata will let you organize and do things that you didn't think were possible with markdown. If you use something like Obsidian then you can pair it with dataview and fly away on some a magic markdown carpet!
