Warn when shortcut reference links are used.

Shortcut references render as links when a definition is found, and as plain text without definition. Sometimes, you don’t intend to create a link from the reference, but this rule still warns anyway. In that case, you can escape the reference like so: \[foo].

Presets

This rule is included in the following presets:

PresetSetting
remark-preset-lint-markdown-style-guide
remark-preset-lint-recommended

Example

ok.md
In
[foo][]

[foo]: http://foo.bar/baz
Out

No messages.

not-ok.md
In
[foo]

[foo]: http://foo.bar/baz
Out
1:1-1:6: Use the trailing `[]` on reference links

Install

npm:

npm install remark-lint-no-shortcut-reference-link

Use

You probably want to use it on the CLI through a config file:

 …
 "remarkConfig": {
   "plugins": [
     …
     "lint",
+    "lint-no-shortcut-reference-link",
     …
   ]
 }
 …

Or use it on the CLI directly

remark -u lint -u lint-no-shortcut-reference-link readme.md

Or use this on the API:

 var remark = require('remark')
 var report = require('vfile-reporter')

 remark()
   .use(require('remark-lint'))
+  .use(require('remark-lint-no-shortcut-reference-link'))
   .process('_Emphasis_ and **importance**', function (err, file) {
     console.error(report(err || file))
   })
