Contents

What is this?

This package is a unified (remark) plugin, specifically a remark-lint rule. Lint rules check markdown code style.

Install

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

npm install remark-lint-definition-spacing

In Deno with esm.sh:

import remarkLintDefinitionSpacing from 'https://esm.sh/remark-lint-definition-spacing@3'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import remarkLintDefinitionSpacing from 'https://esm.sh/remark-lint-definition-spacing@3?bundle'
</script>

Use

On the API:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {reporter} from 'vfile-reporter'
import {remark} from 'remark'
import remarkLint from 'remark-lint'
import remarkLintDefinitionSpacing from 'remark-lint-definition-spacing'

main()

async function main() {
  const file = await remark()
    .use(remarkLint)
    .use(remarkLintDefinitionSpacing)
    .process(await read('example.md'))

  console.error(reporter(file))
}

On the CLI:

remark --use remark-lint --use remark-lint-definition-spacing example.md

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

 …
 "remarkConfig": {
   "plugins": [
     …
     "remark-lint",
+    "remark-lint-definition-spacing",
     …
   ]
 }
 …

API

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

unified().use(remarkLintDefinitionSpacing[, 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).

There are no options.

Recommendation

Definitions and references are matched together by collapsing white space. Using more white space in labels might incorrectly indicate that they are of importance. Due to this, it’s recommended to use one space (or a line ending if needed) and turn this rule on.
