const { markdownRenderer } = require('inkdrop')

It is passed to remark parser. Inkdrop parses Markdown with following options by default:

  gfm: true,
  yaml: false,
  commonmark: true,
  pedantic: false

Available options are here. Note that changing this options would cause unexpected behaviors.

remarkPlugins: Array<RemarkPlugin>

It is an array of custom remark plugins.

  • Example plugin: math

remarkReactComponents: { [string]: ReactComponent }

It is used for rendering Markdown with custom HTML components. If you would like to override rendering a HTML elements with custom component, you could do like so:

class Anchor extends React.Component {
  render () {
    // ...
markdownRenderer.remarkReactComponents.a = Anchor
  • Example plugin: toc

remarkCodeComponents: { [string]: ReactComponent }

It allows you to render code blocks with custom React components. You can define a component for a language like so:

class JSCodeBlock extends React.Component {
  render () {
    // ...
markdownRenderer.remarkCodeComponents['javascript'] = JSCodeBlock
