6. MDX Source Code File
Markdown is a simple markup language that developers use to format text before converting it to HTML. Markdown is written and saved as plain text but includes inline symbols that define how the text will be formatted after being converted to HTML. Markdown is often used to produce simple websites, webpages, and other online content.
Because MDX files are plain text files, you can open them in any text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (Windows) or Apple TextEdit (Mac). However, if you plan to edit an MDX file, you should open it in a source code editor, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code (cross-platform) or Github Atom (cross-platform). With the MDX library installed, source code editors provide helpful editing tools and highlight Markdown and JSX syntax correctly.
