Preview Markdown

Open in CodeSandbox

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import MDEditor from '@uiw/react-md-editor';

export default function App() {
  return (

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.

The following example is preview in CodeSandbox.

Open in CodeSandbox

npm install katex
import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom";
import MDEditor from '@uiw/react-md-editor';
import katex from 'katex';
import 'katex/dist/katex.css';


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

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

const renderers = {
  inlineCode: ({ children }) => {
    if (/^\$\$(.*)\$\$/.test(children)) {
      const html = katex.renderToString(children.replace(/^\$\$(.*)\$\$/, '$1'), {
        throwOnError: false,
      });
      return <code dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: html }} />
    }
    return children;
  },
  code: ({ children, language, value }) => {
    if (language.toLocaleLowerCase() === 'katex') {
      const html = katex.renderToString(value, {
        throwOnError: false
      });
      return (
        <pre>
          <code dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: html }} />
        </pre>
      );
    }
    return children;
  }
}

export default function App() {
  return (
