unist utility to assert trees.

Contents

What is this?

This package is a tiny utility that helps you deal with nodes.

When should I use this?

This utility is typically useful when you expect certain nodes in your APIs and want to make sure they’re valid and as expected.

Different utilities, mdast-util-assert, hast-util-assert, and nlcst-test, do the same but for mdast, hast, and nlcst nodes, respectively.

Install

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

npm install unist-util-assert

In Deno with esm.sh:

import {assert} from 'https://esm.sh/unist-util-assert@3'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import {assert} from 'https://esm.sh/unist-util-assert@3?bundle'
</script>

Use

import {assert, parent, _void} from 'unist-util-assert'

assert({type: 'root', children: []})
assert({type: 'break'})
assert({type: 'element', properties: {}, children: []})
// All OK.

assert({children: []})
// AssertionError: node should have a type: `{ children: [] }`

parent({type: 'break'})
// AssertionError: parent should have `children`: `{ type: 'break' }`

assert({type: 'element', properties: function() {}})
// AssertionError: non-specced property `properties` should be JSON: `{ type: 'element', properties: [Function] }`

_void({type: 'text', value: 'Alpha'})
// AssertionError: void should not have `value`: `{ type: 'text', value: 'Alpha' }`

assert({type: 'paragraph', children: ['foo']})
// AssertionError: node should be an object: `'foo'` in `{ type: 'paragraph', children: [ 'foo' ] }`

API

This package exports the identifiers _void, assert, literal, parent, and wrap. There is no default export.

assert(tree[, parent])

Assert that tree is a valid unist Node.

If tree is a parent, all children will be asserted too.

Parameters
Returns

Nothing.

Throws

When tree (or its descendants) is not a node.

parent(tree[, parent])

Assert that tree is a valid unist Parent.

All children will be asserted too.

Parameters
Returns

Nothing.

Throws

When tree is not a parent or its descendants are not nodes.

literal(node[, parent])

Assert that node is a valid unist Literal.

Parameters
Returns

Nothing.

Throws

When node is not a literal.

_void(node[, parent])

Assert that node is a valid void node.

Parameters
Returns

Nothing.

Throws

When node is not a node, a parent, or a literal.

wrap(fn)

Wrapper that adds the current node (and parent, if available) to error messages.

Parameters
Returns

Wrapped fn.

AssertionError

Assertion error from node:assert (TypeScript type).

Type
type AssertionError = import('node:assert').AssertionError

Extensions

This module can be used as a base to test subsets of unist (for an example, see mdast-util-assert). All functions that are exposed from such a module, and functions used internally to test children, should be wrapped in wrap, which adds an inspectable string of the respective node, and its parent when available, to the exposed error message.

Types

This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It exports the additional type AssertionError.

Compatibility

Projects maintained by the unified collective are compatible with all maintained versions of Node.js. As of now, that is Node.js 14.14+ and 16.0+. Our projects sometimes work with older versions, but this is not guaranteed.
