Markdown renderer plugin for Hexo with kramed-essence engine

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import hexoRendererKramedEssence from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/hexo-renderer-kramed-essence';



GitHub license npm

This plugin uses kramed-essence but not marked nor kramed as render engine, it is a fork of hexo-renderer-kramed. You need to uninstall hexo-renderer-marked or hexo-renderer-kramed to avoid conflicts.

Why use kramed-essence?

For better the support of mathjax. I've modified the inline math format, like this example below:


	npm:hexo-renderer-kramed-essence | Skypack

But this renderer will only wrap your inline tex and display tex with a <script> tag, to fully enable mathjax, you need to add some js code in your theme, what I did in my theme hexo-theme-paperbox is:

<script type="text/x-mathjax-config">
    menuSettings: {
      zoom: "None"
    showMathMenu: false,
    jax: ["input/TeX","output/CommonHTML"],
    extensions: ["tex2jax.js"],
    TeX: {
      extensions: ["AMSmath.js","AMSsymbols.js"],
      equationNumbers: {
        autoNumber: "AMS"
    tex2jax: {
      inlineMath: [["\\(", "\\)"]],
      displayMath: [["\\[", "\\]"]]

<script type="text/javascript" src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/mathjax/2.6.1/MathJax.js"></script>


You can use the following formats for your equations:

inlineMath: `$\sigma

	npm:hexo-renderer-kramed-essence | Skypack

displayMath: $\sigma$

If you need to contain $ in <code> tag:

` $some code$ `

If you need to contain $ in your text:



$ npm uninstall hexo-renderer-marked --save
$ npm install hexo-renderer-kramed-essence --save
