retext plugin to check apostrophes in contractions.

Contents

What is this?

This package is a unified (retext) plugin to check apostrophes in elided contractions. It checks whether they exist (isnt > isn’t) and if they are placed correctly (is’nt > isn’t).

When should I use this?

You can opt-into this plugin when you’re dealing with content that might contain grammar mistakes, and have authors that can fix that content.

Install

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

npm install retext-contractions

In Deno with esm.sh:

import retextContractions from 'https://esm.sh/retext-contractions@6'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import retextContractions from 'https://esm.sh/retext-contractions@6?bundle'
</script>

Use

Say our document example.txt contains:

Well, it does’nt have to be so bad yall, it isnt like the 80s.

…and our module example.js contains:

import retextContractions from 'retext-contractions'
import retextEnglish from 'retext-english'
import retextStringify from 'retext-stringify'
import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {unified} from 'unified'
import {reporter} from 'vfile-reporter'

const file = await unified()
  .use(retextEnglish)
  .use(retextContractions)
  .use(retextStringify)
  .process(await read('example.txt'))

console.error(reporter(file))

…then running node example.js yields:

example.txt
1:10-1:17 warning Unexpected straight apostrophe in `does’nt`, expected `doesn’t` missing-smart-apostrophe retext-contractions
1:36-1:40 warning Unexpected missing apostrophe in `yall`, expected `y’all`       missing-smart-apostrophe retext-contractions
1:45-1:49 warning Unexpected missing apostrophe in `isnt`, expected `isn’t`       missing-smart-apostrophe retext-contractions

Check apostrophes in contractions.

Parameters
  • options (Options, optional) — configuration
Returns

Transform (Transformer).

Options

Configuration (TypeScript type).

Fields
  • allowLiterals (boolean, default: false) — include literal phrases; normally they are ignored
  • straight (boolean, default: false) — suggest straight (') instead of smart () apostrophes; see retext-quotes if you want to properly check that though

Messages

Each message is emitted as a VFileMessage on file, with source set to 'retext-contractions', ruleId to 'missing-smart-apostrophe' or 'missing-straight-apostrophe', actual to the unexpected value, and expected to the expected value.

Types

This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It exports the additional type Options.

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, retext-contractions@^6, compatible with Node.js 16.
