When we write a list in Asciidoctor we can simply create a list item by starting the line with a dot (
To create a another list item we simply start a new line with a dot (
But what if we want to add a list item with multiple paragraphs, or text and a source code block element.
We can use the list item continuation (
+) to indicate to Asciidoctor we want to keep these together for a single list item.
In the following example we have a list in Asciidoctor markup. The second list item has multiple paragraphs , the third item has an extra admonition block and the fourth item contains a source code block:
:icons: font == List continuation When we have a list item that has for example multiple paragraphs, we can use Asciidoctor's list continuation feature. We place a `+` symbol between the paragraphs to indicate the paragraphs belong to a single list item. === Sample list . A very simple first item . This item consists of two paragraphs. + By adding the `+` symbol we indicate this paragraph also belongs to the second list item. . We can even add for example an admonition. + TIP: Did you know Asciidoctor is awesome? . A small code example: + [source,groovy] ---- println 'Groovy rocks!' ---- . Let's end with a simple list item.
Let’s generate this Asciidoctor markup to HTML and we see the following result:
We see how the extra paragraph, admonition and source code are part of a single list item.
