As Markdown is sometimes used for HTML, and improper use of HTML can open you up to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack, use of remark can also be unsafe. When going to HTML, use remark in combination with the rehype ecosystem, and use rehype-sanitize to make the tree safe.

Use of remark plugins could also open you up to other attacks. Carefully assess each plugin and the risks involved in using them.


See contributing.md in remarkjs/.github for ways to get started. See support.md for ways to get help. Ideas for new plugins and tools can be posted in remarkjs/ideas.
