🎩 gatsby-remark-abbr

Add abbreviation syntax support to Gatsby.

With this plugin, you’ll be able to write in your Markdown pages:

The HTML specification
is maintained by the W3C.

*[HTML]: Hyper Text Markup Language
*[W3C]:  World Wide Web Consortium

And it’ll be converted to:

  The <abbr title="Hyper Text Markup Language">HTML</abbr> specification
  is maintained by the <abbr title="World Wide Web Consortium">W3C</abbr>.


  1. Add the package to your project:
  • With yarn:
    yarn add gatsby-remark-abbr
  • With npm:
    npm install gatsby-remark-abbr
  1. Add those few lines into your gatsby-config.js:
    module.exports = {
      plugins: [
          resolve: 'gatsby-transformer-remark',
          options: {
+           plugins: [
+             'gatsby-remark-abbr',
+           ],
  1. Delete .cache/ and reboot gatsby
  2. You can now enjoy markdown abbreviation syntax 🎉


Currently, some code is duplicated between remark-abbr and this plugin. I haven’t figured it out yet how to do avoid this. Any help will be greatly apreciated 😅


It’s a wrapper around remark-abbr plugin, which is under MIT license.
