 }
 …

API

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

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

Shortcut references use an implicit style that looks a lot like something that could occur as plain text instead of syntax. In some cases, plain text is intended instead of a link. Due to this, it’s recommended to use collapsed (or full) references instead.

Examples

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
