Docusaurus supports Markdown and a few additional features.

description: My document description
slug: /my-custom-url
---
## Markdown heading
Markdown text with [links](./hello.md)

Images#

Regular Markdown images are supported.

Code Blocks#

Markdown code blocks are supported with Syntax highlighting.

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

Admonitions#

Docusaurus has a special syntax to create admonitions and callouts:

:::tip My tip
Use this awesome feature option
:::
:::danger Take care
This action is dangerous
:::
My tip

Take care

This action is dangerous

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 !
