Example of Markdown for the custom home page

Is it possible to share some examples of Markdown syntax to personnalize the custom home page ?

I don’t really know Markdown, and even with the doc, I don’t manage to reproduce the style I can see for example on Framatube.

Someone could share his work ? Thanks, Eric. (I’m on Peertube v4.0.0)

@EricG, Here is an example of Markdown. The entire page is in markdown. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Chocobozzz/PeerTube/develop/README.md

The display of this will be as shown here:

Hi @newbedeveloper, thanks for the tip, I didn’t know that the github presentation was written in Markdown.

But it seems to be some differences between the Markdown supported on github and the one on Peertube.
See here : https://tube.reseau-canope.fr/home
I’ve copied/pasted the raw code of the github page in the homepage of Peertube ; you will see that things are displayed differently.
For example :

  • image are larger by default
  • images are not resizing with the browser window
  • text doesn’t follow the border of images on multiple lines
  • align=« center » are not working
  • etc.

Is there a way to correct that, or the Markdown supported by Peertube is more limited ?


Hi EricG,

Here you can see the code of my custom home page.
You can see the display here.

I don’t use all the features, but the basics are there :wink:

I hope this will be useful to you.

Hi rnek0, I’ve looked at your code and page, thanks.
I’ve managed to do something that will be enough for me at this time.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks a lot for your question, I am writing down which I am facing -

This doesn’t seem possible since the custom home page is a simple markdown document, which doesn’t go through any of the LookML background parsing + content creation that lets you use cool things like user attributes.

You could definitely whip up a “Custom Home Page” dashboard with some fancy HTML that could leverage user attributes and still look like a home page, but at the end of the day it would still be a Dashboard, not a document. If you want to go down that route, I can provide some pointers on relevant HTML!

I wasn’t able to find good documentation on this, so thought I’d make a post here in case anyone is trying to do something similar.
You can create a navigation sidebar for Markdown documents using this format at the top of each Markdown document:

title: Help Center

  • section: Help Center
  • document: overview_doc
    label: Overview
  • document: data_sources_doc
    label: Data Sources
  • document: data_definitions_doc
    label: Data Definitions
  • document: faq_doc

Here’s the POC solution I came up with to create a different home page based on user attribute values. Basically also follow this on my best HRMS software in Kolkata and related things. It’s intended as a skeleton that I’ll fill in later as we decide how the two different home pages will look.

I created a new view _test_home_page that has a single field:

measure: _html {

    sql: 1 ;;

    html: <div>

            {% if _user_attributes['foo'] == 'bar' %}


            {% elsif _user_attributes['foo'] != 'bar' %}

              not bar!

            {% endif %}



Then I just present this field in a single-value dashboard tile, enlarged to fill the entire screen. From brief testing, it appears that I can use the usual HTML tags, presumably all the ones listed [here]. I’ve tested it on our instance and it works, showing “bar” for users with user attribute foo set to bar, and “not bar!” otherwise.

Hope this thing will help you properly.
