    remark. Primarily, this is a linter for Markdown. Additionally, thanks to its numerous plugins, it allows us to perform additional checks for grammatical mistakes within the content itself. Before using this linter, our content was not scrutinized to this extent.

  • Simple markdown plugin to open external links in a new tab
    2 projects | dev.to | 4 Jun 2023
    On my personal blog I have few external links in my posts. I wanted to keep people on my website by applying target="_blank" on external (those what don't reference to my site) links. This is a common and good practice too. I write my content in Markdown, so I decided to write a remark plugin. It is simple to implement, just few lines of code.
  • Create an Interactive Table of Contents for a Next.js Blog with Remark
    5 projects | dev.to | 21 Apr 2023
    Although we are building a custom table of contents, we won't have to write everything from scratch. To separate the Markdown/MDX content from the front matter, we'll use the Gray-matter package. It is optional in case you don't have front matter in your Markdown files. To process the Markdown itself, we'll use the Remark package. We'll also need the unist-util-visit package for traversing node trees and mdast-util-to-string for getting the text content of a node.

    That's all to render the post as HTML, there are lots of things you can do to customize the results, you can check the remark plugins and rehype plugins to pass as props to and you can also take a look at some other bloggers if you're looking for different styles for example Lee Robinson's or if you liked mine.
  • Contentlayer with next/image

    contentlayer uses remark to parse the markdown in an mdast. We can now use remark plugins to modify the mdast. Then rehype comes into play and converts the mdast into a hast. rehype plugins can now modify the hast. Finally the hast is converted into react components.

  • I'm a little confused on how to handle blog posts and blog post snippets
    1 project | /r/webdev | 17 Jan 2023
    You mean when fetching the data on the client, you don't want it to come along with the styling? Is it in a tag?

    I just want to wrap my head around the problem more properly, and what you're trying to solve

    Also, if the blog post data was created with styling in the first place then what's the purpose for removing the styling? The only reason I can imagine is that the same blog post data would be used for two different purposes, one needing the styled version while the other would need the unstyled version. Otherwise, if the data is only ever going to be used without styles, I would just make sure they're added without styles in the first

    Also, if you want to store markdown instead of html in the database, you can parse it into HTML on the client using a library like micromark (https://github.com/micromark/micromark) or similar
