Extension for mdast-util-from-markdown and/or mdast-util-to-markdown to support MDX (or MDX.js) in mdast. When parsing (from-markdown), must be combined with either micromark-extension-mdx or micromark-extension-mdxjs.

When to use this

Use this if you’re dealing with the AST manually and want to support all of MDX. You can also use the extensions separately:

Install

This package is ESM only: Node 12+ is needed to use it and it must be imported instead of required.

npm:

npm install mdast-util-mdx

Use

Say we have the following file, example.mdx:

import Box from "place"

Here’s an expression:

{
  1 + 1 /* } */
}

Which you can also put inline: {1+1}.

<Box>
  <SmallerBox>
    - Lists, which can be indented.
  </SmallerBox>
</Box>

And our script, example.js, looks as follows:

import fs from 'node:fs'
import {fromMarkdown} from 'mdast-util-from-markdown'
import {toMarkdown} from 'mdast-util-to-markdown'
import {mdxjs} from 'micromark-extension-mdxjs'
import {mdxFromMarkdown, mdxToMarkdown} from 'mdast-util-mdx'

const doc = fs.readFileSync('example.mdx')

const tree = fromMarkdown(doc, {
  extensions: [mdxjs()],
  mdastExtensions: [mdxFromMarkdown]
})

console.log(tree)

const out = toMarkdown(tree, {extensions: [mdxToMarkdown]})

console.log(out)

Now, running node example yields (positional info removed for brevity):

      type: 'mdxjsEsm',

                  checked: null,
                  children: [
                    {
                      type: 'paragraph',
                      children: [
                        {type: 'text', value: 'Lists, which can be indented.'}
                      ]

                }
              ]
            }
          ]
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}
import Box from "place"

Here’s an expression:

{
  1 + 1 /* } */
}

Which you can also put inline: {1+1}.

<Box>
  <SmallerBox>
    *   Lists, which can be indented.
  </SmallerBox>
</Box>
