DEMO Playground

Table of contents

Basic usage

npm i @bbob/core @bbob/html @bbob/preset-html5
import bbobHTML from '@bbob/html'
import presetHTML5 from '@bbob/preset-html5'

const processed = bbobHTML(`[i]Text[/i]`, presetHTML5())

console.log(processed); // <span style="font-style: italic;">Text</span>

React usage

npm i @bbob/react @bbob/preset-react
import React from 'react'
import {render} from 'react-dom'
import bbobReactRender from '@bbob/react/es/render'
import presetReact from '@bbob/preset-react'

const options = { onlyAllowTags: ['i'], enableEscapeTags: true }
const content = bbobReactRender(`[i]Text[/i]`, presetReact(), options)

console.log(render(<span>{content}</span>)); // <span><span style="font-style: italic;">Text</span></span>

Vue 2 usage

npm i @bbob/vue2 @bbob/preset-vue
import Vue from 'vue'
import VueBbob from '@bbob/vue2';

  <div class="html">
    <h2>Generated HTML here</h2>
    <bbob-bbcode container="div" :plugins="plugins">{{ bbcode }}</bbob-bbcode>
  import Vue from 'vue'
  import preset from '@bbob/preset-vue'
  export default Vue.extend({
    name: 'App',
    data() {
      return {
        bbcode: 'Text [b]bolded[/b] and [i]Some Name[/i]',
        plugins: [

Its a way to transform parsed BBCode AST tree to another tree by rules in preset

Create your own preset

import { createPreset } from '@bbob/preset'

export default createPreset({
  quote: (node) => ({
    tag: 'blockquote',
    attrs: node.attrs,
    content: [{
      tag: 'p',
      attrs: {},
      content: node.content,

HTML Preset

Also you can use predefined preset for HTML

import html5Preset from '@bbob/preset-html5/es'
import { render } from '@bbob/html/es'
import bbob from '@bbob/core'

console.log(bbob(html5Preset()).process(`[quote]Text[/quote]`, { render }).html) // <blockquote><p>Text</p></blockquote>

React Preset

Also you can use predefined preset for React

import reactPreset from "@bbob/preset-react";
import reactRender from "@bbob/react/es/render";

const preset = reactPreset.extend((tags, options) => ({
  quote: node => ({
    tag: "blockquote",
    content: node.content

const result = reactRender(`[quote]Text[/quote]`, reactPreset());

It produces a VDOM Nodes equal to
React.createElement('blockquote', 'Text')
document.getElementById("root").innerHTML = JSON.stringify(result, 4);

React usage


Or you can use React Component

import React from 'react'
import { render } from 'react-dom'

import BBCode from '@bbob/react/es/Component'
import reactPreset from '@bbob/preset-react/es'

const MyComponent = () => (
  <BBCode plugins={[reactPreset()]} options={{ onlyAllowTags: ['i'] }}>

render(<MyComponent />) // <div><blockquote><p>Text</p></blockquote></div>

Render prop

Or pass result as render prop

import React from "react";
import { render } from 'react-dom'

import reactRender from '@bbob/react/es/render'
import reactPreset from '@bbob/preset-react/es'

const toReact = input => reactRender(input, reactPreset())

const text = toReact('[b]Super [i]easy[/i][/b] [u]to[/u] render')

const App = ({ renderProp }) => (

render(<App />) // <span><span style="font-weight: bold;">Super <span style="font-style: italic;">easy</span></span> <span style="text-decoration: underline;">to</span> render</span>
