16. Embed directly in markdown

Accepted

Context

remark-embed is a completely unreliable part of my markdown system.
I’d installed it for notion-like embedding but it just keeps shitting the bed on upgrades.

Decision

Stop using remark-embed and embed directly.

Consequences

  • I’ll likely have a few broken embeds (no matter how diligent I am about fixing them).
  • I have to fix those embeds. blech.
  • Requires that I use the embed code instead of the link.
  • Old embedded code wont have the benefit of any improvements to embed containers.
