API

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

unified().use(remarkLintCheckboxCharacterStyle[, config])

This rule supports standard configuration that all remark lint rules accept (such as false to turn it off or [1, options] to configure it).

The following options (default: 'consistent') are accepted:

Recommendation

It’s recommended to set options.checked to 'x' (a lowercase X) as it prevents an extra keyboard press and options.unchecked to '·' (a space) to make all checkboxes align.

Fix

remark-stringify formats checked checkboxes using 'x' (lowercase X) and unchecked checkboxes using '·' (a space).
