rehype preset to minify HTML.


What is this?

This package is a unified (rehype) preset to minify HTML.

When should I use this?

You can use this plugin when you want to improve the size 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-preset-minify

In Deno with esm.sh:

import rehypePresetMinify from 'https://esm.sh/rehype-preset-minify@6'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import rehypePresetMinify from 'https://esm.sh/rehype-preset-minify@6?bundle'


On the API:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {unified} from 'unified'
import rehypeParse from 'rehype-parse'
import rehypeStringify from 'rehype-stringify'
import rehypePresetMinify from 'rehype-preset-minify'


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


On the CLI:

rehype input.html --use rehype-preset-minify --output output.html

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

 "rehype": {
   "plugins": [
+    "rehype-preset-minify",


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


Use the preset. Presets don’t have options. You can reconfigure plugins in presets by using them afterwards with different options.


<!doctype html>
<html lang="en-GB">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-US">
    <script src="index.js" type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="index.css" type="text/css">
    <title>Foo  &amp;  bar</title>
    <h1 class="foo foo">bar  bar</h1>
    <p id="alfred" id="alfred">  <strong>foo</strong> <em>bar</em> </p>
    <button type="BUTTON" onclick="javascript:return false">Alpha</button>
<!doctypehtml><html lang=en-US><meta charset=utf8><script src=index.js></script><link rel=stylesheet href=index.css><title>Foo &amp bar</title><h1 class=foo>bar bar</h1><p id=alfred><strong>foo</strong> <em>bar</em></p><button type=button onclick=return!1>Alpha</button>


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.
