Welcome to part-5 of the series. You can create part-4 here.

In this part we will start with the adding gatsby-plugin-mdx in our project. It will help to show mdx blogs in our project. MDX files are updated form of markdown files, where you can use react JSX also.

So, as per the documentation we will install the plugin by below command. So, stop you gatsby develop and run below command.

After that let’s add the basic configuration in gatsby-config.js file and then don’t forget to start gatsby by running gatsby develop


Rest of the chapter is exclusive content and will be in my upcoming book Gatsby Cookbook. You can find more details about it here.

Also, need to add them in the gatsby-config.js file.


Let’s finally install the gatsby-image plugin.

After this restart the development server by gatsby develop.

This completes part-5 of the series. You can find part-6 here.

You can find the code for the same in this github repo.
