bleach

A minimalistic HTML sanitizer

bleach

Sanitize your HTML the easy way!

npm install bleach
vows --spec test/*

Basic:

 
var bleach = require('bleach');
 
var html = bleach.sanitize(aBunchOfHTML);
 
console.log(html);

Advanced:

 
var bleach = require('bleach');
 
var whitelist = [
  'a',
  'b',
  'i',
  'em',
  'strong'
]
 
var options = {
  mode: 'white',
  list: whitelist
}
 
var html = bleach.sanitize(aBunchOfHTML, options);
 
console.log(html);

Runs HTML through sanitizer and returns sanitized HTML as string.

options may contain the following optional attributes:

  • mode may be set to 'white' or 'black'
  • list is an array containing tags to match against

whitemode will remove all tags from html, excluding those in list

blackmode will remove all tags found in list that are found in html

Will extract all tags from HTML and return an array of JSON objects. Example return:

[
  {
    full: '<div id="post-119477">',
    name: 'div',
    attr: [
      "id": "post-119477"
    ]
  },
  ...
]

SEXY FUN TIME

 
var nyanFilter = function(input){
  return input.replace('cats', 'nyannyannyan');
}
 
console.log(
  bleach.filter('cats', nyanFilter)
);
 
// nyannyannyan 
 
 
var cutFilter = function(input){
  return input.slice(0, 3);
}
 
console.log(
  bleach.filter('cats', [
    nyanFilter,
    cutFilter
  ])
);
 
// nyan 
 

You may also define longer filters and include them in the ./node_modules/bleach/filters directory. A sample filter is included to convert YouTube flash embed objects to iDevice-compatible YouTube iframes.

 
var html = '<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="420" height="315" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"><param name="src" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/aU079Mdkenw?version=3&amp;hl=en_US"><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/aU079Mdkenw?version=3&amp;hl=en_US" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" id="s_media_1_0" name="s_media_1_0"></object>';
 
console.log(
  bleach.filter(html, 'youtube')
);
 
// <iframe type="text/html" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowfullscreen src="http://youtube.com/embed/aU079Mdkenw"></iframe> 
 

Refer to the filters directory for the template.

This is not a port of the Python bleach library - in fact their implementations are very different.
