Hacktoberfest Spotlight: A More ‘Polite’ MDX Embed Plugin
Enabling the community to easily write and release plugins for use with Gatsby is an absolute hammer of an idea. It gives Gatsby enthusiasts like myself a way to easily get started with open source by providing a solid foundation for us to build on. Then, once you’ve got the plugin basics down you can really let your imagination run wild. This is the story of how I combined my interest in markdown / MDX with the Gatsby plugin ecosystem to contribute a brand new open source plugin, `gatsby-mdx-embed`. And now I'm looking for #hacktoberfest contributions to help the project reach its first major milestone, a stable v1.0.0 release.

Gatsby Recipes: What’s All the Fuss About?
Gatsby Recipes were introduced just last month, as a new tool to automate common site building tasks. A Gatsby Recipe is a kind of task runner that can be authored in MDX and then executed from the command line using the Gatsby CLI. Gatsby now ships with a dozen or so default Recipes, and our amazing community has been busy coming up with more useful contributions! React developer Paul Scanlon discussed his process behind making his first two Recipes, and then walks through how to write your own.
