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

API

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

unified().use(remarkLintMaximumLineLength[, 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: 80) are accepted:

Ignores nodes that cannot be wrapped, such as headings, tables, code, definitions, HTML, and JSX. Ignores images, links, and code (inline) if they start before the wrap, end after the wrap, and there’s no white space after them.

Recommendation

Whether to wrap prose or not is a stylistic choice.

The following is also fine (note the `.`), because there is no whitespace.

In addition, definitions are also fine:

Just like thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis one.

And this one is also very wrong: because the link starts aaaaaaafter the column: <http://line.com>

<http://this-long-url-with-a-long-domain-is-not-ok.co.uk/a-long-path?query=variables> and such.

And this one is also very wrong: because the code starts aaaaaaafter the column: `alpha.bravo()`
