micromark extension to support MDX (agnostic to JS). Use micromark-extension-mdxjs instead to support MDX.js.

This package provides the low-level modules for integrating with the micromark tokenizer but has no handling of compiling to HTML: go to a syntax tree instead.

When to use this

You should probably use micromark-extension-mdxjs instead, which supports JavaScript. Alternatively, if you don’t want JavaScript-aware parsing, use this package.

If you don’t need all of MDX, the extensions can be used separately:


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


npm install micromark-extension-mdx


import {micromark} from 'micromark'
import {mdx} from 'micromark-extension-mdx'

const output = micromark('a <b /> c {1 + 1} d', {extensions: [mdx()]})



<p>a  c  d</p>

…which is rather useless: go to a syntax tree with mdast-util-from-markdown and mdast-util-mdx instead.


This package exports the following identifiers: mdx. There is no default export.


A function that can be called which returns an extension for micromark to parse MDX (can be passed in extensions). There are no options yet.
