Convert between positional (line and column-based) and offsets (range-based) locations in a virtual file.


This package is ESM only: Node 12+ is needed to use it and it must be imported instead of required.


npm install vfile-location


import {VFile} from 'vfile'
import {location} from 'vfile-location'

var place = location(new VFile('foo\nbar\nbaz'))

var offset = place.toOffset({line: 3, column: 3}) // => 10
place.toPoint(offset) // => {line: 3, column: 3, offset: 10}


This package exports the following identifiers: place. There is no default export.

place = location(doc)
