How to create a table of contents in a github markdown formatted file (with sed)

I recently wrote a lengthy file in a github repository and wanted to include a table of contents at the top. I could not find a way to do this with a native tag. I tried to quickly solve it with grep pipe sed, failed horribly, did in vim instead and hated having to do that. I could obviously have done it with a bash script, some grep pipe cut and variables and all that. But I somehow “wanted” to get it done in just one command. The result is the most visually obnoxious (or beautiful?) command I ever had to create.

Super simple bike wall mount

With all family members starting to ride bikes (or run bikes), space in the garage has become a precious good. So I thought about how I could mount some bikes to the wall. The kid’s bikes were not much of a problem. With a little hook each, they all went to the wall easily. But with the mountainbikes … not so easy. I thought about just mounting a small wooden plank to the wall, putting the wheels on that and holding the bike up with a rope. But then I found a way easier and even cheap solution.
