async function main() {
  const file = await remark()

API

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

unified().use(remarkLintHeadingStyle[, 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

Setext headings are limited in that they can only construct headings with a rank of one and two. On the other hand, they do allow multiple lines of content whereas ATX only allows one line. The number of used markers in their underline does not matter, leading to either:

Setext headings are also rather uncommon. Using a sequence of hashes at the end of ATX headings is even more uncommon. Due to this, it’s recommended to prefer ATX headings.

Fix

remark-stringify formats headings as ATX by default. The other styles can be configured with setext: true or closeAtx: true.
