unified().use(remarkLintCodeBlockStyle[, options])

Warn when code blocks violate a given style.

Parameters
  • options (Options, default: 'consistent') — preferred style or whether to detect the first style and warn for further differences
Returns

Transform (Transformer from unified).

Options

Configuration (TypeScript type).

Type
type Options = Style | 'consistent'

Style

Style (TypeScript type).

Type
type Style = 'indented' | 'fenced'

Recommendation

Indentation in markdown is complex as lists and indented code interfere in unexpected ways. Fenced code has more features than indented code: it can specify a programming language. Since CommonMark took the idea of fenced code from GFM, fenced code became widely supported. Due to this, it’s recommended to configure this rule with 'fenced'.

Fix

remark-stringify always formats code blocks as fenced. Pass fences: false to only use fenced code blocks when they have a language and as indented code otherwise.

    earth()
Out

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, remark-lint-code-block-style@4, compatible with Node.js 16.
