🦤 Using mdx-bundler for sreetamdas.com
I FINALLY HAD A BREAKTHROUGH THIS WEEK! 🎉 I'd been meaning to move away from the way that I was using my
.mdx files for my website since it was pretty hack-y.
I'd set my eyes on using mdx-bundler which looks very exciting, but kept running into issues with integrating my custom React and Styled components — but I finally got it working! There's still some work left to do, and you can watch my pull request to see how it's coming along. 😄
