Usage

Within your webpack configuration object, you'll need to add the markdown-to-vue-loader to the list of modules, like so:

module: {
  rules: [
    {
      test: /\.md$/,
      exclude: /(node_modules|bower_components)/,
      use: [
        'vue-loader',
        {
          loader: 'markdown-to-vue-loader',
          options: {
            // ...
          },
        },
      ],
    },
  ],
}

Options

componentNamespace

  • Type: String
  • Default: 'component'

For example, if this is set to 'awesome-component', then given this input (example.md):

# Example

<template>
  <p>Hello, World!</p>
</template>
```

will generate (example.vue):

<template>
  <div>
    <h1>Example</h1>
    <awesome-component-example-0></awesome-component-example-0>
    <pre><code class="language-vue">&lt;template&gt;
  &lt;p&gt;Hello, World!&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;/template&gt;</code></pre>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
  module.exports = {
    components: {
      'awesome-component-example-0': {
        template: '<p>Hello, World!</p>'
      }
    }
  };
</script>

The wrapper for component content. Supports to use Vue component as the wrapper.

For example, if this is set to '<section></section>', then given this input (example.md):

# Example

```html
<p>Hello, World!</p>
```

will generate (example.vue):

<template>
  <div>
    <h1>Example</h1>
    <section><component-example-0></component-example-0></section>
    <pre><code class="language-html">&lt;p&gt;Hello, World!&lt;/p&gt;</code></pre>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
  module.exports = {
    components: {
      'component-example-0': {
        template: '<p>Hello, World!</p>'
      }
    }
  };
</script>

# Hello, World!
import Example from 'example.md';

console.log(Example.source);
// > # Hello, World!

languages

  • Type: Array
  • Default: ['vue', 'html']

The code blocks of these languages will be loaded as Vue components be default.

For example, if this is set to ['js'], then given this input (example.md):

# Example

```js
export default {
  template: '<p>Hello, World!</p>'
}
```

will generate (example.vue):

<template>
  <div>
    <h1>Example</h1>
    <component-example-0></component-example-0>
    <pre><code class="language-js">export default {
  template: '&lt;p&gt;Hello, World!&lt;/p&gt;'
}</code></pre>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
  module.exports = {
    components: {
      'component-example-0': {
        template: '<p>Hello, World!</p>'
      }
    }
  };
</script>

  • Default:
    {
      html: true,
      linkify: true,
      typographer: true,
    }
    
  • Example:
    {
      typographer: false,
      highlight(str, lang) {
        return '';
      },
    }

  • Example: 'table table-bordered border-striped'

The class name for each <table></table> element.

tableWrapper

  • Type: String

The wrapper for each <table></table> element. Supports to use Vue component as the wrapper.

Inline comment options

  • <!-- vue-component -->
  • <!-- no-vue-component -->

If a code block has a <!-- vue-component --> comment before it, then the loader will load it as a Vue component, even though its language is NOT specified in the languages option.

Conversely, if a code block has a <!-- no-vue-component --> comment before it, then the loader will NOT load it as a Vue component, even though its language is specified in the languages option.

For example, given this input (example.md):

# Example

<!-- vue-component -->

```js
export default {
  template: '<p>Hello, World!</p>'
};
```

<!-- no-vue-component -->

```vue
<template>
  <p>Hello, World!</p>
</template>
```

will generate (example.vue):

<template>
  <div>
    <h1>Example</h1>
    <component-example-0></component-example-0>
    <pre><code class="language-js">export default {
  template: '&lt;p&gt;Hello, World!&lt;/p&gt;'
};</code></pre>
    <pre><code class="language-vue">&lt;template&gt;
  &lt;p&gt;Hello, World!&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;/template&gt;</code></pre>
  </div>
</template>
<script>
  module.exports = {
    components: {
      'component-example-0': {
        template: '<p>Hello, World!</p>'
      }
    }
  };
</script>

Scoped CSS

When a <style> tag has the scoped attribute, its CSS will apply to elements of the current component only.

For example, given this input:

<template>
  <p>Hello, World!</p>
</template>

<style scoped>
  p {
    color: green;
  }
</style>

will render as this:

<div class="component-example-0">
  <p>Hello, World!</p>
</div>

<style>
  .component-example-0 p {
    color: green;
  }
</style>
