unified().use(remarkLintFirstHeadingLevel[, 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: 1) are accepted:

Recommendation

In most cases you’d want to first heading in a markdown document to start at rank 1. In some cases a different rank makes more sense, such as when building a blog and generating the primary heading from frontmatter metadata, in which case a value of 2 can be defined here.

Examples

ok.md
In
# The default is to expect a level one heading
Out

No messages.

ok-html.md
In
<h1>An HTML heading is also seen by this rule.</h1>
Out

No messages.

ok-delayed.md
In
You can use markdown content before the heading.

<div>Or non-heading HTML</div>

<h1>So the first heading, be it HTML or markdown, is checked</h1>
Out

No messages.
