Use

On the API:

import remarkLint from 'remark-lint'

import remarkParse from 'remark-parse'
import remarkStringify from 'remark-stringify'
import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {unified} from 'unified'

const file = await read('example.md')

await unified()
  .use(remarkParse)

API

This package exports no identifiers. It exports the TypeScript type Options. The default export is remarkLintRuleStyle.

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

Warn when thematic breaks (horizontal rules) are inconsistent.

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

Options

Configuration (TypeScript type).

  • 'consistent' — detect the first used style and warn when further rules differ
  • string (example: '** * **', '___') — thematic break to prefer
Type
type Options = string | 'consistent'

Recommendation

Rules consist of a *, -, or _ character, which occurs at least three times with nothing else except for arbitrary spaces or tabs on a single line. Using spaces, tabs, or more than three markers is unnecessary work to type out. As asterisks can be used as a marker for more markdown constructs, it’s recommended to use that for rules (and lists, emphasis, strong) too. So it’s recommended to pass '***'.

Fix

remark-stringify formats rules with *** by default. There are three settings to control rules:

  • rule (default: '*') — marker
  • ruleRepetition (default: 3) — repetitions
  • ruleSpaces (default: false) — use spaces between markers

Examples

ok.md
In
Two rules:

* * *

* * *
Out

No messages.

ok.md

When configured with '_______'.

In
_______

_______
Out

No messages.

not-ok.md
In
***

* * *
Out
3:1-3:6: Unexpected thematic rule `* * *`, expected `***`
not-ok.md

When configured with '🌍'.

Out
1:1: Unexpected value `🌍` for `options`, expected thematic rule or `'consistent'`

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-rule-style@4, compatible with Node.js 16.
