Custom Components

The project is built on-top of MDX. MDX allows custom React components to be written within the Markdown content and rendered. provides some useful components to help address common documentation trends.

Please submit a PR or issue if you require a custom component.

<Tabs />

The Tabs component allows you to specify content which can be rendered within tabs:

    {label: 'Apple', value: 'apple'},
    {label: 'Orange', value: 'orange'},
    {label: 'Banana', value: 'banana'},
  <TabItem value="apple">This is an apple ๐ŸŽ</TabItem>
  <TabItem value="orange">This is an orange ๐ŸŠ</TabItem>
  <TabItem value="banana">This is a banana ๐ŸŒ</TabItem>


The component also allows you to synchronize selected tab choices by providing a groupId property:


<Image />

Basic Markdown syntax for images works out of the box (e.g. ![alt tag](src)), however using the Image component directly allows for a bit more control on some of the properties.


By default, images are not zoomable (unless overridden via configuration). Pass the zoom property to the component to enable image zooming:

<Image src="" zoom />


To add a caption to images, provide the caption property:

<Image src="" caption="A pretty caption!" />
A pretty caption!

<Heading />

The Heading component renders a heading tag, by proving a type property:

<Heading type="h1">Heading 1</Heading>
<Heading type="h2">Heading 2</Heading>
<Heading type="h3">Heading 3</Heading>
<Heading type="h4">Heading 4</Heading>
<Heading type="h5">Heading 5</Heading>
<Heading type="h6">Heading 6</Heading>

Heading 1

Heading 2

Heading 3

Heading 4

Heading 5
Heading 6

In most cases, using this component is not required and raw Markdown can be used instead.

<YouTube />

The YouTube component renders an embedded YouTube video by providing a video id:

<YouTube id="dQw4w9WgXcQ" />

<Vimeo />

The Vimeo component renders an embedded Vimeo video by providing a video id:

<Vimeo video="253989945" />

This wraps @ui-wave/react-video, and accepts lots of optional parameters which can be found in their documentation.

We also support a caption property for adding captions to your videos.

<Tweet />

The Tweet component renders an embedded Tweet by providing a tweet id:

<Tweet id="1513662173796605958" />

This component accepts the following props:

idstringThe numerical ID of the desired Tweet.
cardsstringWhen set to hidden, links in a Tweet are not expanded to photo, video, or link previews.hidden
conversationstringWhen set to none, only the cited Tweet will be displayed even if it is in reply to another Tweet.none
