// In your gatsby-config.js
plugins: [

    options: {
      plugins: [
          resolve: `gatsby-remark-acronyms`,
          options: {
            acronyms: {
              CSS: `Cascading Style Sheets`,
              HTML: `Hypertext Markup Language`,


acronymsObject containing keys for acronyms and values for descriptions

Usage in Markdown

My site uses HTML and CSS!

Given the configuration presented above and this small markdown snippet, the rendered HTML output would be:

<p>My site uses <abbr title="Hypertext Markup Language">HTML</abbr> and <abbr title="Cascading Style Sheets">CSS</abbr>!</p>


Just globally style the abbr element as you would any other element through a style sheet.

If you are using the plugin with MDX, you can use MDXProvider to completely control how the abbr element should be rendered:

// src/App.js
import React from 'react';
import { MDXProvider } from '@mdx-js/react';

const Acronym = props => <abbr style={{ color: 'green' }} {...props} />;

const components = {
  abbr: Acronym,

export default props => (
  <MDXProvider components={components}>
    <main {...props} />
