Chapters and Subchapters
GitBook uses a
SUMMARY.md file to define the structure of chapters and subchapters of the book. The
SUMMARY.md file is used to generate the book's table of contents.
SUMMARY.md's format is simply a list of links, the name of the link is used as the chapter's name, and the target is a path to that chapter's file.
Subchapters are defined simply by adding a nested list to a parent chapter.
# Summary * [Chapter 1](chapter1.md) * [Chapter 2](chapter2.md) * [Chapter 3](chapter3.md)
Example with subchapters split into parts
# Summary * [Part I](part1/README.md) * [Writing is nice](part1/writing.md) * [GitBook is nice](part1/gitbook.md) * [Part II](part2/README.md) * [We love feedback](part2/feedback_please.md) * [Better tools for authors](part2/better_tools.md)
