unist utility to create a new tree by mapping all nodes with a given function.

Contents

What is this?

This is a small utility that helps you make new trees.

When should I use this?

You can use this utility to create a new tree by mapping all nodes with a given function. Creating new trees like this can lead to performance problems, as it creates new objects for every node. When dealing with potentially large trees, and relatively few changes, use unist-util-visit (or unist-util-visit-parents) instead.

To remove certain nodes, you can also walk the tree with unist-util-visit, or use unist-util-filter (clones the tree instead of mutating) or unist-util-remove (mutates). To create trees, use unist-builder.

Install

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

npm install unist-util-map

In Deno with esm.sh:

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

In browsers with esm.sh:

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

Use

import {u} from 'unist-builder'
import {map} from 'unist-util-map'

const tree = u('tree', [
  u('leaf', 'leaf 1'),
  u('node', [u('leaf', 'leaf 2')]),
  u('void'),
  u('leaf', 'leaf 3')
])

const next = map(tree, (node) => {
  return node.type === 'leaf'
    ? Object.assign({}, node, {value: 'CHANGED'})
    : node
})

console.dir(next, {depth: null})

Yields:

{
  type: 'tree',
  children: [
    {type: 'leaf', value: 'CHANGED'},
    {type: 'node', children: [{type: 'leaf', value: 'CHANGED'}]},
    {type: 'void'},
    {type: 'leaf', value: 'CHANGED'}
  ]
}

👉 Note: next is a changed clone and tree is not mutated.

API

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

map(tree, mapFunction)

Create a new tree by mapping all nodes with the given function.

Parameters
Returns

New mapped tree (Node).

MapFunction

Function called with a node, its index, and its parent to produce a new node (TypeScript type).

Parameters
Returns

New mapped node (Node).

The children on the returned node are not used. If the original node has children, those are mapped instead.

Types

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

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.
