rehype plugin to move JavaScript <script>s to the end of the body.


What is this?

This package is a plugin that can improve performance by decreasing the time to first render.

When should I use this?

You can use this plugin when you want to improve the speed of HTML documents.


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

npm install rehype-javascript-to-bottom

In Deno with esm.sh:

import rehypeJavaScriptToBottom from 'https://esm.sh/rehype-javascript-to-bottom@3'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import rehypeJavaScriptToBottom from 'https://esm.sh/rehype-javascript-to-bottom@3?bundle'


On the API:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {unified} from 'unified'
import rehypeParse from 'rehype-parse'
import rehypeStringify from 'rehype-stringify'
import rehypeJavaScriptToBottom from 'rehype-javascript-to-bottom'


async function main() {
  const file = await unified()
    .process(await read('index.html'))


On the CLI:

rehype input.html --use rehype-javascript-to-bottom --output output.html

On the CLI in a config file (here a package.json):

 "rehype": {
   "plugins": [
+    "rehype-javascript-to-bottom",


This package exports no identifiers. The default export is rehypeJavaScriptToBottom.

unified().use(rehypeJavaScriptToBottom[, options])

Move JavaScript <script>s to the end of <body>.


Configuration (optional).


Function called with each checked script that can return true to move the script or false if not.


<!doctype html><html><head><script src="index.js"></script></head><body></body></html>
<!doctype html><html><head></head><body><script src="index.js"></script></body></html>


HTML is handled according to WHATWG HTML (the living standard), which is also followed by browsers such as Chrome and Firefox.

Syntax tree

The syntax tree format used is hast.


This package is fully typed with TypeScript.


Projects maintained by the unified collective are compatible with all maintained versions of Node.js. As of now, that is Node.js 12.20+, 14.14+, and 16.0+. Our projects sometimes work with older versions, but this is not guaranteed.


As rehype works on HTML, and improper use of HTML can open you up to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack, use of rehype can also be unsafe. Use rehype-sanitize to make the tree safe.
