.MDX File Association 6

An MDX file is a Markdown (.MD) file that includes elements of JavaScript XML (.JSX) syntax. It contains source code that is part of a React webpage or application. MDX files can be opened in any text editor, but are meant to be opened in source code editors.

More Information

Markdown is a simple markup language that developers use to format text before converting it to HTML. Markdown is written and saved as plain text but includes inline symbols that define how the text will be formatted after being converted to HTML. Markdown is often used to produce simple websites, webpages, and other online content.

Developers who want to extend their Markdown files to include JavaScript XML syntax and React components can do so using the MDX library. Typically, developers use React and JSX to develop single-page web and mobile applications written entirely in JavaScript. MDX allows developers to include JSX components, including styled backgrounds, interactive charts, and alerts, in Markdown-formatted files, sprucing up their otherwise spartan web content.

How do I open an MDX file?

Because MDX files are plain text files, you can open them in any text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (Windows) or Apple TextEdit (Mac). However, if you plan to edit an MDX file, you should open it in a source code editor, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code (cross-platform) or Github Atom (cross-platform). With the MDX library installed, source code editors provide helpful editing tools and highlight Markdown and JSX syntax correctly.
