API

unified().use(remarkLintListItemSpacing[, 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: undefined) are accepted:

Recommendation

First, some background. There are two types of lists in markdown (other than ordered and unordered): tight and loose lists. Lists are tight by default but if there is a blank line between two list items or between two blocks inside an item, that turns the whole list into a loose list. When turning markdown into HTML, paragraphs in tight lists are not wrapped in <p> tags.

This rule defaults to the markdown style guide preference for which lists should be loose or not: loose when at least one item spans more than one line, tight otherwise. With {checkBlanks: true}, this rule dictates that when at least one item is loose, all items must be loose.

Examples
