ultrahtml

A 1.75kB library for enhancing html. ultrahtml has zero dependencies and is compatible with any JavaScript runtime.

Features

  • Tiny, fault-tolerant and friendly HTML-like parser. Works with HTML, Astro, Vue, Svelte, and any other HTML-like syntax.
  • Built-in AST walk utility
  • Built-in transform utility for easy output manipulation
  • Automatic but configurable sanitization, see Sanitization
  • Handy html template utility
  • querySelector and querySelectorAll support using ultrahtml/selector

walk

The walk function provides full control over the AST. It can be used to scan for text, elements, components, or any other validation you might want to do.

Note > walk is async and must be awaited. Use walkSync if it is guaranteed there are no async components in the tree.

import { parse, walk, ELEMENT_NODE } from "ultrahtml";

const ast = parse(`<h1>Hello world!</h1>`);
await walk(ast, async (node) => {
  if (node.type === ELEMENT_NODE && node.name === "script") {
    throw new Error("Found a script!");
  }
});

walkSync

The walkSync function is identical to the walk function, but is synchronous. This should only be used when it is guaranteed there are no async components in the tree.

import { parse, walkSync, ELEMENT_NODE } from "ultrahtml";

const ast = parse(`<h1>Hello world!</h1>`);
walkSync(ast, (node) => {
  if (node.type === ELEMENT_NODE && node.name === "script") {
    throw new Error("Found a script!");
  }
});

render

The render function allows you to serialize an AST back into a string.

Note By default, render will sanitize your markup, removing any script tags. Pass { sanitize: false } to disable this behavior.

import { parse, render } from "ultrahtml";

const ast = parse(`<h1>Hello world!</h1>`);
const output = await render(ast);

transform

The transform function provides a straight-forward way to modify any markup. Sanitize content, swap in-place elements/Components, and more using a set of built-in transformers, or write your own custom transformer.

import { transform, html } from "ultrahtml";
import swap from "ultrahtml/transformers/swap";
import sanitize from "ultrahtml/transformers/sanitize";

const output = await transform(`<h1>Hello world!</h1>`, [
  swap({
    h1: "h2",
    h3: (props, children) => html`<h2 class="ultra">${children}</h2>`,
  }),
  sanitize({ allowElements: ["h1", "h2", "h3"] }),
]);

console.log(output); // <h2>Hello world!</h2>

Sanitization

ultrahtml/transformers/sanitize implements an extension of the HTML Sanitizer API.

Option Type Default Description
allowElements string[] undefined An array of strings indicating elements that the sanitizer should not remove. All elements not in the array will be dropped.
blockElements string[] undefined An array of strings indicating elements that the sanitizer should remove, but keep their child elements.
dropElements string[] ["script"] An array of strings indicating elements (including nested elements) that the sanitizer should remove.
allowAttributes Record<string, string[]> undefined An object where each key is the attribute name and the value is an Array of allowed tag names. Matching attributes will not be removed. All attributes that are not in the array will be dropped.
dropAttributes Record<string, string[]> undefined An object where each key is the attribute name and the value is an Array of dropped tag names. Matching attributes will be removed.
allowComponents boolean false A boolean value set to false (default) to remove components and their children. If set to true, components will be subject to built-in and custom configuration checks (and will be retained or dropped based on those checks).
allowCustomElements boolean false A boolean value set to false (default) to remove custom elements and their children. If set to true, custom elements will be subject to built-in and custom configuration checks (and will be retained or dropped based on those checks).
allowComments boolean false A boolean value set to false (default) to remove HTML comments. Set to true in order to keep comments.
