retext plugin to check for weak and mitigating wording.

Contents

What is this?

This package is a unified (retext) plugin to check for words that are weak: weasels, hedges, and fillers.

When should I use this?

You can opt-into this plugin when you’re dealing with content that might contain vague wording, and have authors that can fix that content.

Install

This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 12.20+, 14.14+, 16.0+, or 18.0+), install with npm:

npm install retext-intensify

In Deno with esm.sh:

import retextIntensify from 'https://esm.sh/retext-intensify@6'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import retextIntensify from 'https://esm.sh/retext-intensify@6?bundle'
</script>

Use

Say our document example.txt contains:

Some people say there are quite some
problems, apparently.

…and our module example.js looks as follows:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {reporter} from 'vfile-reporter'
import {retext} from 'retext'
import retextIntensify from 'retext-intensify'

cosnt file = await retext()
  .use(retextIntensify)
  .process(await read('example.txt'))

console.error(reporter(file))

…now running node example.js yields:

example.txt
    1:1-1:5  warning  Don’t use `Some`, it’s vague or ambiguous       weasel  retext-intensify
  1:13-1:16  warning  Don’t use `say`, it lessens impact              hedge   retext-intensify
  1:27-1:32  warning  Don’t use `quite`, it’s vague or ambiguous      weasel  retext-intensify
  1:33-1:37  warning  Don’t use `some`, it’s vague or ambiguous       weasel  retext-intensify
  2:11-2:21  warning  Don’t use `apparently`, it doesn’t add meaning  filler  retext-intensify
