remark plugin to remove the wrapping paragraph for images.


What is this?

This package is a unified (remark) plugin that searches for paragraphs which contain only images (possibly in links) and nothing else, and then remove those surrounding paragraphs.

When should I use this?

This project can make it simpler to style images with CSS, for example displaying them at the full available width, because paragraph styles no longer interfere with them.


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

npm install remark-unwrap-images

In Deno with esm.sh:

import remarkUnwrapImages from 'https://esm.sh/remark-unwrap-images@4'

In browsers with esm.sh:

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


Say we have the following file example.md.

# Saturn

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest in the Solar
System, after Jupiter.


…and a module example.js:

import {unified} from 'unified'
import rehypeStringify from 'rehype-stringify'
import remarkParse from 'remark-parse'
import remarkRehype from 'remark-rehype'
import remarkUnwrapImages from 'remark-unwrap-images'
import {read} from 'to-vfile'

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


…then running node example.js yields:

<p>Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest in the Solar
System, after Jupiter.</p>

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-unwrap-images@^4, compatible with Node.js 16.

This plugin works with unified version 6+ and remark version 7+.


Use of remark-unwrap-images does not involve rehype (hast) or user content, it only removes some existing nodes, so there are no openings for cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
