Warn when shortcut reference links are used.

Parameters

There are no options.

Returns

Transform (Transformer from unified).

Recommendation

Shortcut references use an implicit style that looks a lot like something that could occur as plain text instead of syntax. In some cases, plain text is intended instead of a link. So it’s recommended to use collapsed or full references instead.

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-no-shortcut-reference-link@4, compatible with Node.js 16.
