remark is a Markdown processor powered by plugins part of the unified collective.


remark is not another Markdown to HTML compiler. It can generate and reformat Markdown too. Powered by plugins to do all kinds of things: check Markdown code style, transform safely to React, add a table of contents, or compile to man pages.

This repository contains the following projects:

  • remark-parse — Parse Markdown documents to syntax trees
  • remark-stringify — Stringify syntax trees to Markdown documents
  • remark — Programmatic interface with both remark-parse and remark-stringify
  • remark-cli — Command-line interface wrapping remark

As Markdown is sometimes used for HTML, and improper use of HTML can open you up to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack, use of remark can also be unsafe. When going to HTML, use remark in combination with the rehype ecosystem, and use rehype-sanitize to make the tree safe.

Use of remark plugins could also open you up to other attacks. Carefully assess each plugin and the risks involved in using them.
