Contents

What is this?

This package might be useful when you are making your own micromark extensions.

Install

This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 16+), install with npm:

npm install micromark-util-decode-string

In Deno with esm.sh:

import {decodeString} from 'https://esm.sh/micromark-util-decode-string@1'

  import {decodeString} from 'https://esm.sh/micromark-util-decode-string@1?bundle'
</script>

API

This module exports the identifier decodeString. There is no default export.

decodeString(value)

Decode markdown strings (which occur in places such as fenced code info strings, destinations, labels, and titles).

The “string” content type allows character escapes and -references. This decodes those.

Parameters
  • value (string) — value to decode
Returns

Decoded value (string).

Types

This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It exports no additional types.

Compatibility

Projects maintained by the unified collective are compatible with maintained versions of Node.js.

When we cut a new major release, we drop support for unmaintained versions of Node. This means we try to keep the current release line, micromark-util-decode-string@^2, compatible with Node.js 16. This package works with micromark@^3.
