strip-yfm NPM version

The best project ever.

Getting Started

To install the module, run the following in the command line:

npm i strip-yfm --save

Use within your application with the following line of JavaScript:

var yfm = require('strip-yfm');



Type: Object Default: {start: '---', end: '---'}

The starting and ending delimiters that are used before and after the YAML front matter.

For example:

var yfm = require('strip-yfm');
var delimiters = {
  start: '/*---',
  end: '---*/'
var file = require('fs').readFileSync('my-file.hbs', 'utf8');
var strippedFile = yfm.strip(file, delimiters);


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using [grunt][].

  • helpers: some great handlebars helpers that we decided not to include in the handlebars-helpers project, most likely because the code footprint was too big or the helper wasn't generic enough.
