I usually create my Markdown (md) in R. Outlining is one of md's strength. So after composing a long doc with structured heading then our problem is "how can we make a table of contents (toc) out of it".
One solution is using "pandoc" with terminal command. Another way is to use "knitr" in R. you can type:
R> library(knitr)
R> knit2html('foo.Rmd', options=c('toc',markdown::markdownHTMLOptions(TRUE)))
Change the 'foo.md' with your Rmd file.
Then you get an html file with a nice toc as a result.
