  • how to retain position of markdown element in remark.js

    I usually combine remark-parse, remark-rehype and rehype-react to transform markdown into react components. The configuration of the processor is like:
  • Building an Astro Blog with View Transitions
    5 projects | dev.to | 24 Aug 2023
    Astro content collection are as simple as a folder containing a bunch of Markdown (or Markdoc or MDX) files if that's the only thing you need, but they can also do relationship matching between different collections, frontmatter validation using zod and you can also customize how the markdown is parsed and translated to html using rehype and remark and their plugin ecosystem.
  • 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┬áRemark
    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.

    5 projects | dev.to | 16 Feb 2023
    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
    11 projects | dev.to | 4 Jan 2023
    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.
  • Serving Docusaurus images with Cloudinary
    3 projects | dev.to | 25 Dec 2022
    Now we have our Cloudinary account set up, we can use it with Docusaurus. To do so, we need to create a remark plugin. This is a plugin for the remark markdown processor. It's a plugin that will transform the markdown image syntax into a Cloudinary URL.
