hast utility to parse the tree again, now supporting embedded raw nodes.

One of the reasons to do this is for “malformed” syntax trees: for example, say there’s an h1 element in a p element, this utility will make them siblings.

Another reason to do this is if raw HTML/XML is embedded in a syntax tree, which can occur when coming from Markdown using mdast-util-to-hast.

If you’re working with remark and/or remark-rehype, use rehype-raw instead.


This package is ESM only: Node 12+ is needed to use it and it must be imported instead of required.


npm install hast-util-raw


import {h} from 'hastscript'
import {raw} from 'hast-util-raw'

const tree = h('div', [h('h1', ['Foo ', h('h2', 'Bar'), ' Baz'])])

const reformatted = raw(tree)



{ type: 'element',
  tagName: 'div',
  properties: {},
   [ { type: 'element',
       tagName: 'h1',
       properties: {},
       children: [Object] },
     { type: 'element',
       tagName: 'h2',
       properties: {},
       children: [Object] },
     { type: 'text', value: ' Baz' } ] }


This package exports the following identifiers: raw. There is no default export.

raw(tree[, file][, options])

Given a hast tree and an optional vfile (for positional info), return a new parsed-again hast tree.


List of custom hast node types to pass through (keep) in hast (Array.<string>, default: []). If the passed through nodes have children, those children are expected to be hast and will be handled.


Use of hast-util-raw can open you up to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack as raw nodes are unsafe. The following example shows how a raw node is used to inject a script that runs when loaded in a browser.

raw(u('root', [u('raw', '<script>alert(1)</script>')]))



Do not use this utility in combination with user input or use hast-util-santize.
