  • Creating a Developer Portfolio with Next.js and Cosmic

  • Brick by brick: why Docusaurus is a powerful documentation framework
    9 projects | dev.to | 6 Jul 2022
    MDX also supports Remark and Rehype plugins, allowing you to augment the syntax and replace content on the fly. What can we do with this? Docusaurus demonstrates this well by creating its own plugins for admonitions, table of contents generation, and creating heading links.

    If you need extensibility, I would recommend remark. It exposes an ASTs of the Markdown and the HTML which you can modify by adding plugins.
  • Extract code block from markdown??
    1 project | reddit.com/r/reactjs | 9 Jun 2022

  • Is Astro ready for your blog?
    20 projects | dev.to | 24 Apr 2022
    SSG-based blogs almost always have you add content mainly through use of Markdown, so how a platform handles that is particularly important. Astro incorporates both the well-known Remark Markdown parser and rehype tool, and uses plugins from both. Some Remark plugins aren’t compatible with the latest version but, often, a rehype plugin can make up for that. Be sure to check for your specific use case. Also, notably, Astro allows you to put components in the Markdown (I’ll get to components further down). For example, if you’ve already imported an ImageBox.astro component as ImageBox, you could have Markdown like this:

    3 projects | dev.to | 10 Apr 2022
    snarkdown is a barebones markdown parser with the sole purpose of converting markdown to HTML. This could be used in cases where you don't need a full fledged tool like marked or remark
  • Powerful Code Blocks with Code Hike and MDX
    7 projects | dev.to | 6 Mar 2022
    Now, we must add Code Hike as a Remark plugin. Remark is a simple markdown processor that has a huge ecosystem of plugins.
  • MDSveX: The bridge between Markdown and Svelte
    8 projects | dev.to | 4 Mar 2022
    The coolest thing is that MDSveX hooks into remark and rehype, which provides a whole ecosystem of plugins to choose from.
