remark plugin to remove empty (or white space only) paragraphs.


What is this?

This package is a unified (remark) plugin that removes empty paragraphs, left over from other operations, from the tree. Paragraphs are considered empty if they do not contain non-whitespace characters.

When should I use this?

This project is mostly useful when you’re using other plugins that remove things from the AST (such as remark-strip-badges). You can then use this plugin afterwards to clean stray empty paragraphs.

👉 Note: this plugin used to be useful, but with time the responsibility for cleaning the tree has shifted to the plugins that cause that.

If you need this, you should also open an issue with the tools causing that.


This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 16+), install with npm:

npm install remark-squeeze-paragraphs

In Deno with esm.sh:

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import remarkSqueezeParagraphs from 'https://esm.sh/remark-squeeze-paragraphs@6?bundle'


import {remark} from 'remark'
import remarkSqueezeParagraphs from 'remark-squeeze-paragraphs'
import remarkStripBadges from 'remark-strip-badges'

    await remark()
// => '\n\ntext\n'

    await remark()

Projects maintained by the unified collective are compatible with maintained versions of Node.js.

When we cut a new major release, we drop support for unmaintained versions of Node. This means we try to keep the current release line, remark-squeeze-paragraphs@^6, compatible with Node.js 16.

This plugin works with unified version 3+ and remark version 4+.


Use of remark-squeeze-paragraphs does not involve rehype (hast) or user content so there are no openings for cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
