Markdown code blocks are supported with Syntax highlighting.

src/components/HelloDocusaurus.js
function HelloDocusaurus() {  return <h1>Hello, Docusaurus!</h1>;}

MDX and React Components#

MDX can make your documentation more interactive and allows using any React components inside Markdown:

export const Highlight = ({children, color}) => (  <span    style={{      backgroundColor: color,      borderRadius: '20px',      color: '#fff',      padding: '10px',      cursor: 'pointer',    }}    onClick={() => {      alert(`You clicked the color ${color} with label ${children}`)    }}>    {children}  </span>);
This is <Highlight color="#25c2a0">Docusaurus green</Highlight> !
This is <Highlight color="#1877F2">Facebook blue</Highlight> !

This is Docusaurus green !

This is Facebook blue !
