Asciidoctor syntax - a cheatsheet

Recently, I was writing a lot of Asciidoc / Asciidoctor for a document that I was working on for a customer at Red Hat.

Asciidoctor is a fantastic publishing tool – in fact, I used it to write my book, Camel Step-by-Step – but some of the syntax can be a bit hard to remember, especially when you’re using more advanced features like code snippets or admonitions (those “note”/”warning”/”important” type blocks!)

So I thought I’d make a cheatsheet to help me remember the key features that I use. You might not use all of these, or you might use some others that aren’t here. But I thought I would share the cheatsheet in case you find it useful too!

To write code, indent each line with 4 spaces. Or, to paste a lot of code, you can put it in and share the link in your comment.
