How to Manage the TOC of Articles on dev.to?

I know there is no current standard in Markdown to write Table Of Content, but does anyone knows a trick to do it on dev.to?
Could it work by using HTML anchors?
But how can I know the future URL of the article I'm currently writing?

Any help would be welcome :)

You can use inline anchors with Markdown:

## TOC
  * [Chapter 1](#chapter-1)
  * [Chapter 2](#chapter-2)
  * [Chapter 3](#chapter-3)

### Chapter 1 <a name="chapter-1"></a>

This way you don't need to know the final URL

Thanks for the question and the answer.
I didn't know that trick and I am going to try it in my next post.
