Use a wiki
When you add a repository to Bitbucket Cloud, you also get a wiki. The wiki is a simple place to keep documents. Some people use it as their project home page. The wiki is a Mercurial/Git repository, so you can clone it and edit it like any other source files For example, take a look at the TortoiseHg wiki on Bitbucket Cloud.
Supported Markup Languages
In some cases, you can use a Bitbucket macro or the Bitbucket markup to do the same thing. The Bitbucket markup works in all languages; The Bitbucket macros work only with Creole markup.
Supported File Extensions
We support Python-Markdown and the following extensions:
For Bitbucket wikis only, not supported with README files.
If you have a defined a
setup.py file in your repository's root, Bitbucket parses files without an extension or that use the
.txt extension as reST also. If you do not define a
setup.py file, these files render as plain text.
