Using MDX

This theme comes with the @astrojs/mdx integration installed and configured in your astro.config.mjs config file. If you prefer not to use MDX, you can disable support by removing the integration from your config file.

If you have existing content authored in MDX, this integration will hopefully make migrating to Astro a breeze.
