remark plugin to remove badges (such as shields.io).


What is this?

This package is a unified (remark) plugin to remove badges (such as shields.io).

When should I use this?

This package is useful when you’re taking (user generated) readmes, which in the JavaScript community often have assorted badges, but want to display them cleanly on a website or in a limited medium such as man pages.

A different plugin, remark-squeeze-paragraphs, can take care of potentially empty paragraphs left behind by this plugin.


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

npm install remark-strip-badges

In Deno with esm.sh:

import remarkStripBadges from 'https://esm.sh/remark-strip-badges@7'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import remarkStripBadges from 'https://esm.sh/remark-strip-badges@7?bundle'


Say we have the following file example.md:

# pluto [![Build](https://github.com/solar-system/pluto/workflows/main/badge.svg)](https://github.com/solar-system/pluto/actions)

…and a module example.js:

import {remark} from 'remark'
import remarkStripBadges from 'remark-strip-badges'
import {read} from 'to-vfile'

const file = await remark()
  .process(await read('example.md'))


…then running node example.js yields:

# pluto


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


Remove badges (such as shields.io).


There are no parameters.


Transform (Transformer).


Any image (or image references) that references a known badge (see is-badge) will be removed. If it occurs in a link, that link is also removed.


This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It exports no additional types.


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-strip-badges@^7, compatible with Node.js 16.

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


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