Markdown Question

Centering text/pictures with markdown and pandoc

I'm trying to write a post with

Hakyll
in
markdown
via
pandoc
.

I successfully add some pictures, tables and codeblocks with
markdown
but I would like to center my pictures and some text paragraph.

Is it possible to center text and pictures with
pandoc
and
markdown
markup language?

Answer

Think of markdown as a nicer syntax for HTML – it's only the content, no styling. (Centering would be styling.) You cannot center text in HTML either. But you can add classes, then style them with CSS (in your Hakyll theme).

Pandoc markdown currently supports attributes on images:

![](img.jpg){.myClass}

but not paragraphs, however you can wrap stuff in divs:

# my markdown header

<div class="myClass">

  one paragraph

  second paragraph, **strong**

</div>
