unist utility to find nodes before another node.


What is this?

This is a tiny utility that you can use to find nodes before another node or before an index in a parent.

When should I use this?

This is super tiny. You can of course do it yourself. But this helps when integrating with the rest of unified and unist.


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

npm install unist-util-find-all-before

In Deno with esm.sh:

import {findAllBefore} from 'https://esm.sh/unist-util-find-all-before@5'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import {findAllBefore} from 'https://esm.sh/unist-util-find-all-before@5?bundle'


import {u} from 'unist-builder'
import {findAllBefore} from 'unist-util-find-all-before'

const tree = u('tree', [
  u('leaf', 'leaf 1'),
  u('parent', [u('leaf', 'leaf 2'), u('leaf', 'leaf 3')]),
  u('leaf', 'leaf 4'),
  u('parent', [u('leaf', 'leaf 5')]),
  u('leaf', 'leaf 6'),
  u('leaf', 'leaf 7')

const leaf6 = tree.children[4]

console.log(findAllBefore(tree, leaf6, 'leaf'))


  { type: 'leaf', value: 'leaf 1' },
  { type: 'leaf', value: 'leaf 4' }


This package exports the identifier findAllBefore. There is no default export.

findAllBefore(parent, child|index[, test])

Find the nodes in parent before another node or before an index, that pass test.


Children of parent (Array<Node>).


This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It exports no additional types (types for the test are in unist-util-is).


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, unist-util-find-all-before@^5, compatible with Node.js 16.
