  prefixCls?: string;

  onMouseOver?: (e: React.MouseEvent<HTMLDivElement>) => void;

This ReactMarkdownProps details.

  • source or children - string The Markdown source to parse (required)
  • className - string Class name of the container element. If none is passed, a container will not be rendered.
  • escapeHtml - boolean Setting to false will cause HTML to be rendered (see notes below about proper HTML support). Be aware that setting this to false might cause security issues if the
    input is user-generated. Use at your own risk. (default: true).
  • skipHtml - boolean Setting to true will skip inlined and blocks of HTML (default: false).
  • sourcePos - boolean Setting to true will add data-sourcepos attributes to all elements,
    indicating where in the markdown source they were rendered from (default: false).
  • rawSourcePos - boolean Setting to true will pass a sourcePosition property to all renderers with structured source position information (default: false).
  • includeNodeIndex - boolean Setting to true will pass index and parentChildCount props to all renderers (default: false).
  • allowedTypes - array Defines which types of nodes should be allowed (rendered). (default: all
  • disallowedTypes - array Defines which types of nodes should be disallowed (not rendered).
    (default: none).
  • unwrapDisallowed - boolean Setting to true will try to extract/unwrap the children of
    disallowed nodes. For instance, if disallowing Strong, the default behaviour is to simply skip
    the text within the strong altogether, while the behaviour some might want is to simply have the
    text returned without the strong wrapping it. (default: false)
  • allowNode - function Function execute if in order to determine if the node should be allowed.
    Ran prior to checking allowedTypes/disallowedTypes. Returning a truthy value will allow the
    node to be included. Note that if this function returns true and the type is not in
    allowedTypes (or specified as a disallowedType), it won't be included. The function will
    receive three arguments argument (node, index, parent), where node contains different
    properties depending on the node type.
  • linkTarget - function|string Sets the default target attribute for links. If a function is
    provided, it will be called with url, text, and title and should return a string
    (e.g. _blank for a new tab). Default is undefined (no target attribute).
  • transformLinkUri - function|null Function that gets called for each encountered link with a
    single argument - uri. The returned value is used in place of the original. The default link URI
    transformer acts as an XSS-filter, neutralizing things like javascript:, vbscript: and file:
    protocols. If you specify a custom function, this default filter won't be called, but you can
    access it as require('react-markdown').uriTransformer. If you want to disable the default
    transformer, pass null to this option.
  • transformImageUri - function|null Function that gets called for each encountered image with a
    single argument - uri. The returned value is used in place of the original.
  • renderers - object An object where the keys represent the node type and the value is a React
    component. The object is merged with the default renderers. The props passed to the component
    varies based on the type of node.
