My best markdown lifehack is to ditch it in favor of asciidoc as soon as you are doing something non trivial.
Simple things should be easy, complex things should be possible said a wise man. Markdown got only the first part right. Asciidoc is as easy as markdown for the simple things but won't let you down if you do something more complex
If I really need more complex I might just use good ol' latex
Latex is oriented towards Print though, that's a different use case
Which really is the only time where I need something more complex than markdown.
That's what I thought also, but in fact markdown is never enough if you look at it closely :
The question then is whether to use multiple incompatible "markdown plus extension" or a standardized better format like asciidoc.
