How To Create A List In Markdown

A list is one of the best ways of laying out step-by-step instructions or presenting related items to readers.

There are two main types of lists:

👉 Ordered List

An ordered list is one where the items within the list need to be followed in chronological order.

Here is an example of such a list

  1. Wake up
  2. Clean up
  3. Eat

Creating this list is straightforward and there is no designated syntax to achieve this.

👉 Unordered list

An unordered list is a list of items where the order does not matter.

  • football
  • backetball
  • tennisball

To have the dots show up by each item in an unordered list you will have to place a hyphen (-) before each item in the list.

The Markdown for the above list is as follows:


01: - football
02: - backetball
03: - tennisball
