remark plugin to automatically link references to commits, issues, pull-requests, and users, like in GitHub issues, PRs, and comments (see Writing on GitHub).

Note!

This plugin is ready for the new parser in remark (micromark, see remarkjs/remark#536). Version 10 works with old (12) and new (13+) remark!

Install

npm:

npm install remark-github

Use

Say we have the following file, example.md:

*   Mention: <https://github.com/ben-eb>

And our script, example.js, looks as follows:

var vfile = require('to-vfile')
var remark = require('remark')
var github = require('remark-github')

remark()
  .use(github)
  .process(vfile.readSync('example.md'), function (err, file) {
    if (err) throw err
    console.log(String(file))
  })

Now, running node example yields:

API

remark.use(github[, options])

Automatically link references to commits, issues, pull-requests, and users, like in GitHub issues, PRs, and comments (see Writing on GitHub).

Conversion
Repository

These links are generated relative to a project. In Node this is detected automatically by loading package.json and looking for a repository field. In the browser, or when overwriting this, you can pass a repository in options. The value of repository should be a URL to a GitHub repository, such as 'https://github.com/user/project.git', or only 'user/project'.

Mentions

By default, mentions are wrapped in strong nodes (that render to <strong> in HTML), to simulate the look of mentions on GitHub. However, this creates different HTML markup, as the GitHub site applies these styles using CSS. Pass mentionStrong: false to turn off this behavior.

Security

Use of remark-github does not involve rehype (hast). It does inject links based on user content, but those links only go to GitHub. There are no openings for cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
