remark-lint rule to warn when URLs are also defined identifiers.

Contents

What is this?

This package is a unified (remark) plugin, specifically a remark-lint rule. Lint rules check markdown code style.

When should I use this?

You can use this package to check for broken URLs that should likely have been references.

Presets

This rule is not included in a preset maintained here.

Install

This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 12.20+, 14.14+, or 16.0+), install with npm:

npm install remark-lint-no-reference-like-url

In Deno with esm.sh:

import remarkLintNoReferenceLikeUrl from 'https://esm.sh/remark-lint-no-reference-like-url@3'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import remarkLintNoReferenceLikeUrl from 'https://esm.sh/remark-lint-no-reference-like-url@3?bundle'
</script>

Use

On the API:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {reporter} from 'vfile-reporter'
import {remark} from 'remark'
import remarkLint from 'remark-lint'
import remarkLintNoReferenceLikeUrl from 'remark-lint-no-reference-like-url'

main()

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

  console.error(reporter(file))
}

On the CLI:

remark --use remark-lint --use remark-lint-no-reference-like-url example.md

On the CLI in a config file (here a package.json):

 …
 "remarkConfig": {
   "plugins": [
     …
     "remark-lint",
+    "remark-lint-no-reference-like-url",
     …
   ]
 }
 …

API

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

unified().use(remarkLintNoReferenceLikeUrl[, 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).

There are no options.

Recommendation

While full URLs for definition identifiers are okay ([https://example.com]: https://example.com), and what looks like an identifier could be an actual URL ([text](alpha)), the more common case is that, assuming a definition [alpha]: https://example.com, then a link of ([text](alpha)) should instead’ve been [text][alpha].

Examples

ok.md
In
[Alpha](http://example.com).

[bravo]: https://example.com
Out

No messages.

not-ok.md
In
[Charlie](delta).

[delta]: https://example.com
Out
1:1-1:17: Did you mean to use `[delta]` instead of `(delta)`, a reference?

Compatibility

Projects maintained by the unified collective are compatible with all maintained versions of Node.js. As of now, that is Node.js 12.20+, 14.14+, and 16.0+. Our projects sometimes work with older versions, but this is not guaranteed.
