micromark extension to support GitHub flavored markdown (GFM) task list items.


What is this?

This package is a micromark extension to add support for GFM task list items. It matches how task list items work on github.com.

When to use this

In many cases, when working with micromark, you’d want to use micromark-extension-gfm instead, which combines this package with other GFM features.

When working with syntax trees, you’d want to combine this package with mdast-util-gfm-task-list-item (or mdast-util-gfm when using micromark-extension-gfm).

These tools are all rather low-level. In most cases, you’d instead want to use remark-gfm with remark.


This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 12.20+, 14.14+, or 16.0+), install with npm:

npm install micromark-extension-gfm-task-list-item

In Deno with esm.sh:

import {gfmTaskListItem, gfmTaskListItemHtml} from 'https://esm.sh/micromark-extension-gfm-task-list-item@1'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import {gfmTaskListItem, gfmTaskListItemHtml} from 'https://esm.sh/micromark-extension-gfm-task-list-item@1?bundle'


import {micromark} from 'micromark'
import {
} from 'micromark-extension-gfm-task-list-item'

const output = micromark('* [x] a\n* [ ] b', {
  extensions: [gfmTaskListItem],
  htmlExtensions: [gfmTaskListItemHtml]



<li><input checked="" disabled="" type="checkbox"> a</li>
<li><input disabled="" type="checkbox"> b</li>


This package exports the following identifiers: gfmTaskListItem, gfmTaskListItemHtml. There is no default export.

The export map supports the endorsed development condition. Run node --conditions development module.js to get instrumented dev code. Without this condition, production code is loaded.


An extension for micromark to parse GFM task list items (can be passed in extensions).


An extension to compile them to HTML (can be passed in htmlExtensions).


This package is fully typed with TypeScript. There are no additional exported types.


This package is at least compatible with all maintained versions of Node.js. As of now, that is Node.js 12.20+, 14.14+, and 16.0+. It also works in Deno and modern browsers.


This package is safe.
