mdast utility to check if a node is phrasing content.


What is this?

This package is a tiny utility to check that a given node is phrasing content.

When should I use this?

This utility is typically useful if you’re making other utilities. It uses unist-util-is, which you can use for your own checks.

A different utility, hast-util-phrasing, does the same but on hast.


This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 16+), install with npm:

npm install mdast-util-phrasing

In Deno with esm.sh:

import {phrasing} from 'https://esm.sh/mdast-util-phrasing@4'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import {phrasing} from 'https://esm.sh/mdast-util-phrasing@4?bundle'


import {phrasing} from 'mdast-util-phrasing'

phrasing({type: 'paragraph', children: [{type: 'text', value: 'Alpha'}]})
// => false

phrasing({type: 'strong', children: [{type: 'text', value: 'Delta'}]})
// => true


This package exports the identifier phrasing. There is no default export.


Check if the given value is phrasing content.

👉 Note: Excludes html, which can be both phrasing or flow.


Whether value is phrasing content (boolean).


This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It does not export extra types.


Projects maintained by the unified collective are compatible with maintained versions of Node.js.

When we cut a new major release, we drop support for unmaintained versions of Node. This means we try to keep the current release line, mdast-util-phrasing@^4, compatible with Node.js 16.


Use of mdast-util-phrasing does not involve hast, user content, or change the tree, so there are no openings for cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
