Quick Start

$ npm install @uiw/react-markdown-preview --save

Usage Example

Open in CodeSandbox

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `
## MarkdownPreview

> todo: React component preview markdown text.
`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview source={source} style={{ padding: 16 }} />
  )
}

Disable Header links

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `
## MarkdownPreview

## Header 2

### Header 3
`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview
      source={source}
      style={{ padding: 16 }}
      rehypeRewrite={(node, index, parent) => {
        if (node.tagName === "a" && parent && /^h(1|2|3|4|5|6)/.test(parent.tagName)) {
          parent.children = parent.children.slice(1)
        }
      }}
    />
  );
}

highlight line

syntax: ```jsx {1,4-5}

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `
\`\`\`js {2}
function () {
  console.log('hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello')
}
\`\`\`
\`\`\`js {2}
function () {
  console.log('hello ')
}
\`\`\`
`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview
      source={source}
      style={{ padding: 16 }}
      rehypeRewrite={(node, index, parent) => {
        if (node.tagName === "a" && parent && /^h(1|2|3|4|5|6)/.test(parent.tagName)) {
          parent.children = parent.children.slice(1)
        }
      }}
    />
  );
}

Show Line Numbers

syntax: ```jsx showLineNumbers {1,4-5}

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `
\`\`\`js showLineNumbers
function () {
  console.log('hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello')
}
\`\`\`
\`\`\`js showLineNumbers {2}
function () {
  console.log('hello ')
}
\`\`\`
`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview
      source={source}
      style={{ padding: 16 }}
      rehypeRewrite={(node, index, parent) => {
        if (node.tagName === "a" && parent && /^h(1|2|3|4|5|6)/.test(parent.tagName)) {
          parent.children = parent.children.slice(1)
        }
      }}
    />
  );
}

Code Highlight

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `
\`\`\`js
function () {
  console.log('hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello')
}
\`\`\`
\`\`\`js
function () {
  console.log('hello ')
}
\`\`\`
`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview source={source} style={{ padding: 16 }} />
  );
}

Remove Code Highlight

The following example can help you exclude code highlighting code from being included in the bundle. @uiw/react-markdown-preview/nohighlight component does not contain the rehype-prism-plus code highlighting package, showLineNumbers and highlight line functions will no longer work. (#586)

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview/nohighlight';

const source = `
\`\`\`js
function () {
  console.log('hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello hello')
}
\`\`\`
\`\`\`js
function () {
  console.log('hello ')
}
\`\`\`
`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview
      source={source}
      style={{ padding: 16 }}
      rehypeRewrite={(node, index, parent) => {
        if (node.tagName === "a" && parent && /^h(1|2|3|4|5|6)/.test(parent.tagName)) {
          parent.children = parent.children.slice(1)
        }
      }}
    />
  );
}

Ignore

Ignore content display via HTML comments, Shown in GitHub readme, excluded in HTML.

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `
<!--rehype:ignore:start-->
Content ignored
<!--rehype:ignore:end-->
Some content is ignored, please check the source code
`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview
      source={source}
      style={{ padding: 16 }}
      rehypeRewrite={(node, index, parent) => {
        if (node.tagName === "a" && parent && /^h(1|2|3|4|5|6)/.test(parent.tagName)) {
          parent.children = parent.children.slice(1)
        }
      }}
    />
  );
}
<!--rehype:ignore:start-->Ignored content<!--rehype:ignore:end-->

Support Custom KaTeX Preview

KaTeX is a fast, easy-to-use JavaScript library for TeX math rendering on the web, We perform math rendering through KaTeX.

npm install katex
import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';
import { getCodeString } from 'rehype-rewrite';
import katex from 'katex';
import 'katex/dist/katex.css';

const source = `This is to display the 
\`\$\$\c = \\pm\\sqrt{a^2 + b^2}\$\$\`
 in one line

\`\`\`KaTeX
c = \\pm\\sqrt{a^2 + b^2}
\`\`\`
`;

export default function Demo() {
  const [value, setValue] = React.useState(source);
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview
      source={source}
      style={{ padding: 16 }}
      components={{
        code: ({ children = [], className, ...props }) => {
          if (typeof children === 'string' && /^\$\$(.*)\$\$/.test(children)) {
            const html = katex.renderToString(children.replace(/^\$\$(.*)\$\$/, '$1'), {
              throwOnError: false,
            });
            return <code dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: html }} style={{ background: 'transparent' }} />;
          }
          const code = props.node && props.node.children ? getCodeString(props.node.children) : children;
          if (
            typeof code === 'string' &&
            typeof className === 'string' &&
            /^language-katex/.test(className.toLocaleLowerCase())
          ) {
            const html = katex.renderToString(code, {
              throwOnError: false,
            });
            return <code style={{ fontSize: '150%' }} dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: html }} />;
          }
          return <code className={String(className)}>{children}</code>;
        },
      }}
    />
  );
}

Support Custom Mermaid Preview

Using mermaid to generation of diagram and flowchart from text in a similar manner as markdown

Open in CodeSandbox

import React, { useState, useRef, useEffect, Fragment, useCallback } from "react";
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';
import { getCodeString } from 'rehype-rewrite';
import mermaid from "mermaid";

const randomid = () => parseInt(String(Math.random() * 1e15), 10).toString(36);
const Code = ({ inline, children = [], className, ...props }) => {
  const demoid = useRef(`dome${randomid()}`);
  const [container, setContainer] = useState(null);
  const isMermaid = className && /^language-mermaid/.test(className.toLocaleLowerCase());
  const code = props.node && props.node.children ? getCodeString(props.node.children) : children[0] || '';

  const reRender = async () => {
    if (container && isMermaid) {
      try {
        const str = await mermaid.render(demoid.current, code);
        container.innerHTML = str.svg;
      } catch (error) {
        container.innerHTML = error;
      }
    }
  }

  useEffect(() => {
    reRender()
  }, [container, isMermaid, code, demoid]);

  const refElement = useCallback((node) => {
    if (node !== null) {
      setContainer(node);
    }
  }, []);

  if (isMermaid) {
    return (
      <Fragment>
        <code id={demoid.current} style={{ display: "none" }} />
        <code ref={refElement} data-name="mermaid" />
      </Fragment>
    );
  }
  return <code>{children}</code>;
};
const source = `The following are some examples of the diagrams, charts and graphs that can be made using Mermaid and the Markdown-inspired text specific to it. 

\`\`\`mermaid
graph TD
A[Hard] -->|Text| B(Round)
B --> C{Decision}

`;
// const source = `
// \`\`\`mermaid
// graph TD;
//     A-->B;
//     A-->C;
//     B-->D;
//     C-->D;

// `;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview
      source={source}
      style={{ padding: 16 }}
      components={{
        code: Code
      }}
    />
  );
}

Security

Please note markdown needs to be sanitized if you do not completely trust your authors. Otherwise, your app is vulnerable to XSS. This can be achieved by adding rehype-sanitize as a plugin.

import React from 'react';
import rehypeSanitize from "rehype-sanitize";
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `
## MarkdownPreview

**Hello world!!!** <IFRAME SRC=\"javascript:javascript:alert(window.origin);\"></IFRAME>

<!-- test --> 123

<!-- test --> 456 <!-- test -->
`;

const rehypePlugins = [rehypeSanitize];
export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview source={source} rehypePlugins={rehypePlugins} style={{ padding: 16 }} />
  )
}

Options Props

import { ReactMarkdownProps } from 'react-markdown';
import { RehypeRewriteOptions } from 'rehype-rewrite';

type MarkdownPreviewProps = {
  prefixCls?: string;
  className?: string;
  source?: string;
  disableCopy?: boolean;
  style?: React.CSSProperties;
  pluginsFilter?: (type: 'rehype' | 'remark', plugin: PluggableList) => PluggableList;
  wrapperElement?: React.DetailedHTMLProps<React.HTMLAttributes<HTMLDivElement>, HTMLDivElement> & {
    'data-color-mode'?: 'light' | 'dark';
  };
  onScroll?: (e: React.UIEvent<HTMLDivElement>) => void;
  onMouseOver?: (e: React.MouseEvent<HTMLDivElement>) => void;
  rehypeRewrite?: RehypeRewriteOptions['rewrite'];
} & ReactMarkdownProps;
  • source (string, default: '')
    Markdown to parse
  • className (string?)
    Wrap the markdown in a div with this class name

This ReactMarkdownProps details. Upgrade react-markdown v9

  • children (string, default: '')
    Markdown to parse
  • className (string?)
    Wrap the markdown in a div with this class name
  • skipHtml (boolean, default: false -> true )
    Ignore HTML in Markdown completely
  • allowElement ((element, index, parent) => boolean?, optional)
    Function called to check if an element is allowed (when truthy) or not. allowedElements / disallowedElements is used first!
  • remarkPlugins (Array.<Plugin>, default: [])
    List of remark plugins to use. See the next section for examples on how to pass options
  • rehypePlugins (Array.<Plugin>, default: [])
    List of rehype plugins to use. See the next section for examples on how to pass options

[!NOTE]

Upgrade react-markdown v8 to v9

Add urlTransform

The transformImageUri and transformLinkUri were removed. Having two functions is a bit much, particularly because there are more URLs you might want to change (or which might be unsafe so we make them safe). And their name and APIs were a bit weird. You can use the new urlTransform prop instead to change all your URLs.

Remove linkTarget

The linkTarget option was removed; you should likely not set targets. If you want to, use rehype-external-links.

Remove includeElementIndex

The includeElementIndex option was removed, so index is never passed to components. Write a plugin to pass index:

Show example of plugin
import {visit} from 'unist-util-visit'

function rehypePluginAddingIndex() {
  /**
   * @param {import('hast').Root} tree
   * @returns {undefined}
   */
  return function (tree) {
    visit(tree, function (node, index) {
      if (node.type === 'element' && typeof index === 'number') {
        node.properties.index = index
      }
    })
  }
}

Remove rawSourcePos

The rawSourcePos option was removed, so sourcePos is never passed to components. All components are passed node, so you can get node.position from them.

Remove sourcePos

The sourcePos option was removed, so data-sourcepos is never passed to elements. Write a plugin to pass index:

Show example of plugin
import {stringifyPosition} from 'unist-util-stringify-position'
import {visit} from 'unist-util-visit'

function rehypePluginAddingIndex() {
  /**
   * @param {import('hast').Root} tree
   * @returns {undefined}
   */
  return function (tree) {
    visit(tree, function (node) {
      if (node.type === 'element') {
        node.properties.dataSourcepos = stringifyPosition(node.position)
      }
    })
  }
}

Remove extra props passed to certain components

When overwriting components, these props are no longer passed:

  • inline on code — create a plugin or use pre for the block
  • level on h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 — check node.tagName instead
  • checked on li — check task-list-item class or check props.children
  • index on li — create a plugin
  • ordered on li — create a plugin or check the parent
  • depth on ol, ul — create a plugin
  • ordered on ol, ul — check node.tagName instead
  • isHeader on td, th — check node.tagName instead
  • isHeader on tr — create a plugin or check children

Markdown Features

Supports for CSS Style

Use HTML comments <!--rehype:xxx--> to let Markdown support style customization.

## Title
<!--rehype:style=display: flex; height: 230px; align-items: center; justify-content: center; font-size: 38px;-->

Markdown Supports **Style**<!--rehype:style=color: red;-->

Support for GFM footnotes

Here is a simple footnote[^1]. With some additional text after it.

[^1]: My reference.

Ignore content display

# Hello World

<!--rehype:ignore:start-->Hello World<!--rehype:ignore:end-->

Good!

Output:

<h1>Hello World</h1>

<p>Good!</p>

Support for Github Alerts

import React from 'react';
import MarkdownPreview from '@uiw/react-markdown-preview';

const source = `> 
> 
> [!NOTE]
> Useful information that users should know, even when skimming content.

> [!TIP]
> Helpful advice for doing things better or more easily.

> [!IMPORTANT]
> Key information users need to know to achieve their goal.

> [!WARNING]
> Urgent info that needs immediate user attention to avoid problems.

> [!CAUTION]
> Advises about risks or negative outcomes of certain actions.


`;

export default function Demo() {
  return (
    <MarkdownPreview source={source} style={{ padding: 16 }} />
  )
}

Support dark-mode/night-mode

By default, the dark-mode is automatically switched according to the system. If you need to switch manually, just set the data-color-mode="dark" parameter for body.

<html data-color-mode="dark">
document.documentElement.setAttribute('data-color-mode', 'dark')
document.documentElement.setAttribute('data-color-mode', 'light')

Inherit custom color variables by adding .wmde-markdown-var selector.

const Demo = () => {
  return (
    <div>
      <div className="wmde-markdown-var"> </div>
      <MarkdownPreview source="Hello World!" />
    </div>
  )
}

Set the light theme.

<MarkdownPreview
  source="Hello World!"
  wrapperElement={{
+    "data-color-mode": "light"
  }}
/>
