What is Remarkable Function, Plugin in React

Remarkable Plugin is a formatting tool that transform text with added syntax into HTML in real time without refreshing the page.

Example –

Suppose the text is – “Javaatpoint”.

Added Syntax = “#” , this ‘#’ means h1 tag in Remarkable , so We will put “#Javaatpoint” in Textbox & will see the Output.

Text Input Area & Output –

After clicking on inspect , the HTML Code for this page –

As You Can See Javaatpoint is in “H1” tag, this is the one example , similarly you can play with Remarkable.

Code for Remarkable

import {Remarkable} from 'remarkable';     

class MarkdownEditor extends React.Component {
  constructor(props) {
    this.md = new Remarkable();
    this.handleChange = this.handleChange.bind(this);
    this.state = { value: 'Hello, **world**!' };

  handleChange(e) {
    this.setState({ value: e.target.value });

  getRawMarkup() {
    return { __html: this.md.render(this.state.value) };

  render() {
    return (
      <div className="MarkdownEditor">
        <label htmlFor="markdown-content">
          Enter some markdown

const root = ReactDOM.createRoot(document.getElementById('root'));

Code Source – https://reactjs.org/ & some lines are added extra in Code.

As you can see in above code , Remarkable is imported firstly , than it is defined in “this.md”.

Than , state & handleChange is defined , then handleChange & getRawMarkup function is defined, than it is used in render.
