    filesFrontMatter.push({
      ...data,
      slug: file.replace(".mdx", ""),
    });
  });
  return filesFrontMatter;
}

Create components

// /components/MDXComponents.js

import Image from "next/image";

const MDXImage = ({ src, alt }) => {
  return (
    <div className="relative w-full h-[400px]">
      <Image alt={alt} src={src} layout="fill" className="object-cover object-center" />
    </div>
  );
};

const MDXComponents = {
  MDXImage,
};

export default MDXComponents;

Get all data by type


  const snippets = await getAllFilesFrontMatter("code");
  const posts = await getAllFilesFrontMatter("post");
  const orderedSnippets = snippets
    .sort((a, b) => Number(new Date(b.published)) - Number(new Date(a.published)))
    .slice(0, 3);
  const orderedPosts = posts
    .sort((a, b) => Number(new Date(b.published)) - Number(new Date(a.published)))
    .slice(0, 3);
