Use

     …
   ]
 }
 …

API

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

unified().use(remarkLintMaximumHeadingLength[, 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: 60) are accepted:

Ignores syntax, only checks the plain text content.

Recommendation

While this rule is sometimes annoying, reasonable size headings do help SEO purposes (bots prefer reasonable headings), visual users (headings are typically displayed quite large), and users of screen readers (who typically use “jump to heading” features to navigate within a page, which reads every heading out loud).

Examples

ok.md
In
# Alpha bravo charlie delta echo foxtrot golf hotel

# ![Alpha bravo charlie delta echo foxtrot golf hotel](http://example.com/nato.png)
Out

No messages.

not-ok.md

When configured with 40.

In
# Alpha bravo charlie delta echo foxtrot golf hotel
Out
1:1-1:52: Use headings shorter than `40`
