Display string formatted as Markdown.
Function signature

st.markdown(body, unsafe_allow_html=False)


body (str)

The string to display as Github-flavored Markdown. Syntax information can be found at: https://github.github.com/gfm.

This also supports:

unsafe_allow_html (bool)

By default, any HTML tags found in the body will be escaped and therefore treated as pure text. This behavior may be turned off by setting this argument to True.

That said, we strongly advise against it. It is hard to write secure HTML, so by using this argument you may be compromising your users' security. For more information, see:


Also note that ``unsafe_allow_html`` is a temporary measure and may be removed from Streamlit at any time.

If you decide to turn on HTML anyway, we ask you to please tell us your exact use case here:


This will help us come up with safe APIs that allow you to do what you want.
