usage

Input:

const src = `
\`\`\`javascript
console.log('Hello World');
\`\`\`
`;

Using remark (mdast):

require('unified')()
  .use(require('remark-parse'))
  .use(require('remark-stringify'))
  .use(require('remark-prism'), {
    /* options */
  })
  .use(require('remark-html'))
  .process(file, (err, file) => console.log(String(file)));

Using rehype (hast):

require('unified')()
  .use(require('remark-parse'))
  .use(require('remark-prism'), {
    /* options */
  })
  .use(require('remark-rehype'))
  .use(require('rehype-format'))
  .use(require('rehype-stringify'))
  .process(file, (err, file) => console.log(String(file)));

Using mdx:

console.log(
  await require('@mdx-js/mdx')(src, {
    commonmark: true,
    gfm: true,
    remarkPlugins: [
      [
        require('remark-prism'),
        {
          /* options */
        },
      ],
    ],
  }),
);

Output:

<div class="remark-highlight">
  <pre class="language-javascript">
    <code>
      <span class="token console class-name">console</span>
      <span class="token punctuation">.</span>
      <span class="token method function property-access">log</span>
      <span class="token punctuation">(</span>
      <span class="token string">'Hello World'</span>
      <span class="token punctuation">)</span>
      <span class="token punctuation">;</span>
