remark plugin to remove all links, images, references, and definitions.


What is this?

This package is a unified (remark) plugin to remove all links and images.

unified is a project that transforms content with abstract syntax trees (ASTs). remark adds support for markdown to unified. mdast is the markdown AST that remark uses. This is a remark plugin that transforms mdast.

When should I use this?

This project is useful if you display markdown documents somewhere where links and images don’t work, such as man pages, on paper, or some ereaders.


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

npm install remark-unlink

In Deno with esm.sh:

import remarkUnlink from 'https://esm.sh/remark-unlink@4'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import remarkUnlink from 'https://esm.sh/remark-unlink@4?bundle'


Say we have the following file example.md.

## TOC

- [section 1](#section-1)
- [section 2](#section-2)

## section 1

Section [content][1] may include some [links](https://domain.name/path).

[1]: https://domain.name/path

## section 2

![some images are here also](https://gif.com/1.gif)

More content.

And our module example.js looks as follows:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {remark} from 'remark'
import remarkUnlink from 'remark-unlink'


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


Now, running node example yields:

## TOC

*   section 1
*   section 2

## section 1

Section content may include some links.

## section 2

More content.


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

Plugin to remove all links, images, references, and definitions. There are no options.


This package is fully typed with TypeScript. There are no extra exported types.


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.

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


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