React components

Thanks to MDX, you can make your doc more interactive and use React components inside Markdown:

export const Highlight = ({children, color}) => (
backgroundColor: color,
borderRadius: '2px',
color: 'red',
padding: '0.2rem',

<Highlight color="#25c2a0">Docusaurus green</Highlight> and <Highlight color="#1877F2">Facebook blue</Highlight> are my favorite colors.
