rehype plugin to remove type and language attributes on JavaScript scripts.


What is this?

This package is a plugin that removes type and/or language attributes on JavaScript scripts, as they are unneeded. This plugin does not touch other <script> elements (such as JavaScript modules or non-JavaScript scripts).

When should I use this?

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

HTML is parsed according to WHATWG HTML (the living standard), which is also followed by all browsers.

Syntax tree

The syntax tree used is hast.


This package is fully typed with TypeScript.


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, rehype-remove-script-type-javascript@^4, compatible with Node.js 16.


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.
