rehype plugin to automatically add links to headings (h1-h6).

Install

npm:

npm install rehype-autolink-headings

Use

Say we have the following file, fragment.html:

<h1>Lorem ipsum 😪</h1>
<h2>dolor—sit—amet</h2>
<h3>consectetur &amp; adipisicing</h3>
<h4>elit</h4>
<h5>elit</h5>

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

var fs = require('fs')
var rehype = require('rehype')
var slug = require('rehype-slug')
var link = require('rehype-autolink-headings')

var doc = fs.readFileSync('fragment.html')

rehype()
  .data('settings', {fragment: true})
  .use(slug)
  .use(link)
  .process(doc, function(err, file) {
    if (err) throw err
    console.log(String(file))
  })

Now, running node example yields:

<h1 id="lorem-ipsum-"><a aria-hidden="true" href="#lorem-ipsum-"><span class="icon icon-link"></span></a>Lorem ipsum 😪</h1>
<h2 id="dolorsitamet"><a aria-hidden="true" href="#dolorsitamet"><span class="icon icon-link"></span></a>dolor—sit—amet</h2>
<h3 id="consectetur--adipisicing"><a aria-hidden="true" href="#consectetur--adipisicing"><span class="icon icon-link"></span></a>consectetur &#x26; adipisicing</h3>
<h4 id="elit"><a aria-hidden="true" href="#elit"><span class="icon icon-link"></span></a>elit</h4>
<h5 id="elit-1"><a aria-hidden="true" href="#elit-1"><span class="icon icon-link"></span></a>elit</h5>

API

Add links to headings (h1-h6) with an id.

Note: this plugin expects ids to already exist on headings. One way to add those automatically, is rehype-slug (see example).

options
options.behavior

How to create links (string, default: 'prepend').

Supplying wrap will ignore any value defined by the content option. Supplying prepend, append, or wrap will ignore the group option.

options.properties

Extra properties to set on the link (Object?). Defaults to {ariaHidden: true, tabIndex: -1} when in 'prepend' or 'append' mode.

options.content

hast nodes to insert in the link (Function|Node|Children). By default, the following is used:

{
  type: 'element',
  tagName: 'span',
  properties: {className: ['icon', 'icon-link']},
  children: []
}

If behavior is wrap, then content is ignored.

If content is a function, it’s called with the current heading (Node) and should return one or more nodes:

var toString = require('hast-util-to-string')
var h = require('hastscript')

// …

function content(node) {
  return [
    h('span.visually-hidden', 'Read the “', toString(node), '” section'),
    h('span.icon.icon-link', {ariaHidden: true})
  ]
}
options.group

hast node to wrap the heading and link with (Function|Node), if behavior is before or after. There is no default.

If behavior is prepend, append, or wrap, then group is ignored.

If group is a function, it’s called with the current heading (Node) and should return a hast node.

var h = require('hastscript')

// …

function group(node) {
  return h('.heading-' + node.charAt(1) + '-group')
}

Security

Use of rehype-autolink-headings can open you up to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack if you pass user provided content in properties or content.

Always be wary of user input and use rehype-sanitize.
