npm install remark-lint-link-title-style

In Deno with esm.sh:

import remarkLintLinkTitleStyle from 'https://esm.sh/remark-lint-link-title-style@3'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import remarkLintLinkTitleStyle from 'https://esm.sh/remark-lint-link-title-style@3?bundle'

Use

On the API:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {reporter} from 'vfile-reporter'
import {remark} from 'remark'
import remarkLint from 'remark-lint'
import remarkLintLinkTitleStyle from 'remark-lint-link-title-style'

main()

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

  console.error(reporter(file))

     …
   ]
 }
 …

API

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

unified().use(remarkLintLinkTitleStyle[, 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

Parens in titles were not supported in markdown before CommonMark. While they should work in most places now, not all markdown parsers follow CommonMark. Parens for titles also arguably look a bit weird because they’re inside more parens: [text](url (title)).

In HTML, attributes are commonly written with double quotes. Due to this, titles are almost exclusively wrapped in double quotes in markdown, so it’s recommended to configure this rule with '"'.

Fix

remark-stringify formats titles with double quotes by default. Pass quote: "'" to use single quotes. There is no option to use parens.

Examples

ok.md

When configured with '"'.

In
[Example](http://example.com#without-title)
[Example](http://example.com "Example Domain")
![Example](http://example.com "Example Domain")

[Example]: http://example.com "Example Domain"

You can use parens in URLs if they’re not a title (see GH-166):

[Example](#Heading-(optional))
Out

No messages.

not-ok.md

When configured with '"'.

In
[Example]: http://example.com 'Example Domain'
Out
1:31-1:47: Titles should use `"` as a quote
ok.md

When configured with "'".

In
[Example](http://example.com#without-title)
[Example](http://example.com 'Example Domain')
![Example](http://example.com 'Example Domain')

[Example]: http://example.com 'Example Domain'
Out

![Example](http://example.com (Example Domain))

Out

No messages.
