Working with Markdown

Integration blocks can be configured to leverage custom formatting and parsing of markdown content.

As a code block

In some cases (ex: with our official Mermaid block), integrations might want to format custom blocks as code-blocks in Markdown.

In the gitbook-manifest.yaml, define the markdown property for the a block:

    - id: block-name
      title: My custom block
        codeblock: blocksyntax
        body: content

In this scenario, a block with the properties { "content": "something" } will be formatted as:


In the scenario where the block also has other properties, those will be set on the codeblock. For example with a block having the properties { "content": "something", "propA": "A" }

```blocksyntax propA="A"
