marked-sections

A simple node.js package to use marked to parse markdown and insert <section> tags around heading levels.

Usage

var mdsec = require('marked-sections');

mdsec.setOptions({
	levels: 2,
	hierarchy: false,
	deep: false,
	// marked options too
	gfm: true // see marked for full docs
});

html = mdsec.parse(markdownText);
html2 = mdsec.parse(markdownText, { hierarchy: true }); // change options

// Or you can do it manually
tree = mdsec.marked.lexer(markdownText);
sectree = mdsec.sectionalize(tree);
html = mdsec.marked.parser(sectree);

Options

marked-sections takes two options above and beyond marked.

  • levels refers to the header levels to wrap in sections. It should be the highest header level that should be wrapped in a section.
  • hierarchy will make each level of header wrapped in a hierarchy of section tags. Defaults to false.
  • deep will make a all hierarchy levels deep. Defaults to false.
  • promoteHr will promote HR's outside of the sections (level 0). Defaults to true.

For example, with hierarchy on:

```
# H1
something
## H2
else
# H1
again
```

becomes

```
<section>
	<h1>H1</h1>
	<p>something</p>
	<section>
		<h2>H2</h2>
		<p>else</p>
	</section>
</section>
<section>
	<h1>H1</h1>
	<p>again</p>
</section>
```
