textlint-util-to-string Actions Status: test

Convert Paragraph Node to plain text with SourceMap. It means that you can get original position from plain text.

This library is for textlint and textstat.

Installation

npm install textlint-util-to-string

Terminology

The concepts position and index are the same with TxtAST Interface and textlint/structured-source.

  • position is a { line, column } object.
    • The column property of position is 0-based.
    • The line property of position is 1-based.
  • index is an offset number.
    • The index property is 0-based.

API

new StringSource(node: TxtParentNode, options?: StringSourceOptions)

Create new StringSource instance for paragraph Node.

toString(): string

Get plain text from Paragraph Node.

This plain text is concatenated from value of all children nodes of Paragraph Node.

import { StringSource } from "textlint-util-to-string";
const report = function (context) {
    const { Syntax, report, RuleError } = context;
    return {
        // "This is **a** `code`."
        [Syntax.Paragraph](node) {
            const source = new StringSource(node);
            const text = source.toString(); // => "This is a code."
        }
    }
};

In some cases, you may want to replace some characters in the plain text for avoiding false positives. You can replace value of children nodes by options.replacer.

options.replacer is a function that takes a node and commands like maskValue or emptyValue. If you want to modify the value of the node, return command function calls.

// "This is a `code`."
const source = new StringSource(paragraphNode, {
    replacer({ node, maskValue }) {
        if (node.type === Syntax.Code) {
            return maskValue("_"); // code => ____
        }
    }
});
console.log(source.toString()); // => "This is a ____."
  • maskValue(character: string): mask the value of the node with the given character.
  • emptyValue(): replace the value of the node with an empty string.

Examples

Create plain text from Paragraph Node and get original position from plain text.

import assert from "assert";
import { StringSource } from "textlint-util-to-string";
const report = function (context) {
    const { Syntax, report, RuleError } = context;
    return {
        // "This is [Example!?](http://example.com/)"
        [Syntax.Paragraph](node) {
            const source = new StringSource(node);
            const text = source.toString(); // => "This is Example!?"
            // "Example" is located at the index 8 in the plain text
            //  ^
            const index1 = result.indexOf("Example");
            assert.strictEqual(index1, 8);
            // The "Example" is located at the index 9 in the original text
            assert.strictEqual(source.originalIndexFromIndex(index1), 9);
            assert.deepStrictEqual(source.originalPositionFromPosition({
                line: 1,
                column: 8
            }), {
                line: 1,
                column: 9
            });

            // Another example with "!?", which is located at 15 in the plain text
            // and at 16 in the original text
            const index2 = result.indexOf("!?");
            assert.strictEqual(index2, 15);
            assert.strictEqual(source.originalIndexFromIndex(index2), 16);
        }
    }
};

Integration with sentence-splitter

sentence-splitter splits a paragraph into sentences. You can pass the Sentence node to StringSource to get the plain text of the sentence.

import assert from "assert";
import { splitAST, SentenceSplitterSyntax } from "sentence-splitter";
import { StringSource } from "textlint-util-to-string";
import type { TextlintRuleModule } from "@textlint/types";
const report: TextlintRuleModule<Options> = function (context) {
    const { Syntax, report, RuleError } = context;
    return {
        // "First sentence. Second sentence."
        [Syntax.Paragraph](node) {
          // { children: [Sentence, WhiteSpace, Sentence] }
          const sentenceRoot = splitAST(node);
          // ["First sentence." node, "Second sentence." node]
          const sentences = sentenceRoot.children.filter((node) => node.type === SentenceSplitterSyntax.Sentence);
          for (const sentence of sentences) {
            const sentenceSource = new StringSource(sentence);
            const sentenceText = sentenceSource.toString();
            console.log(sentenceText);
            const sentenceIndex = sentenceText.indexOf("sentence");
            const originalSentenceIndex = sentenceSource.originalIndexFromIndex(sentenceIndex);
            console.log({ sentenceIndex, originalSentenceIndex });
          }
        }
    }
};
export default report;

FAQ

Why return relative position from rootNode?

const AST = {...}
const rootNode = AST.children[10];
const source = new StringSource(rootNode);
source.originalIndexFor(0); // should be 0

To return relative position easy to compute position(We think).

One space has a single absolute position, The other should be relative position.
