retext plugin to check for for repeated words.


What is this?

This package is a unified (retext) plugin to check for repeated words. For example, like like this.

When should I use this?

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


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

npm install retext-repeated-words

In Deno with esm.sh:

import retextRepeatedWords from 'https://esm.sh/retext-repeated-words@5'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import retextRepeatedWords from 'https://esm.sh/retext-repeated-words@5?bundle'


Say our document example.txt contains:

Well, it it doesn’t have to to be. Like a fish in the
the sea.

…and our module example.js contains:

import {read} from 'to-vfile'
import {reporter} from 'vfile-reporter'
import {unified} from 'unified'
import retextEnglish from 'retext-english'
import retextStringify from 'retext-stringify'
import retextRepeatedWords from 'retext-repeated-words'

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


…then running node example.js yields:

1:7-1:12  warning Unexpected repeated `it`, remove one occurrence  it  retext-repeated-words
1:26-1:31 warning Unexpected repeated `to`, remove one occurrence  to  retext-repeated-words
1:51-2:4  warning Unexpected repeated `the`, remove one occurrence the retext-repeated-words

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, retext-repeated-words@^5, compatible with Node.js 16.
