1. Writing Content
  2. Reusable Snippets

One of the core principles of software development is DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself). This is a principle that we should apply to our documentation as well. If you find yourself repeating the same content in multiple places, you should consider creating a custom snippet to keep your content in sync.

Creating and using a custom snippet

  1. Create a new file in the _snippets directory.
  2. Construct your snippet content - it can be a component or a chunk of text.
## My Snippet

This is my snippet.

<Info>I want to use this content in more than one place in my docs.</Info>
  1. Navigate to the file where you want to use the snippet.
  2. Add the snippet to the file using the following syntax:
<Snippet file="my-snippet.mdx" />

You do not need to prepend the “_snippets” directory to the file name and you do not need to import the snippet.
