    micromark extension to support frontmatter (YAML, TOML, etc).

    As there is no spec for frontmatter in markdown, this extension follows how YAML frontmatter works on github.com. For the HTML part, instead of rendering YAML, it is ignored. Other types of frontmatter can be parsed, which will by default also work the same as on github.com.

    This package provides the low-level modules for integrating with the micromark tokenizer and the micromark HTML compiler.

    You probably shouldn’t use this package directly, but instead use mdast-util-frontmatter with mdast or remark-frontmatter with remark.

    Install

    npm:

    npm install micromark-extension-frontmatter

    API

    html(options)

    syntax(options)

    Note: syntax is the default export of this module, html is available at micromark-extension-frontmatter/html.

    Support frontmatter (YAML, TOML, and more).

    The exports are functions that can be called with options and return extensions for the micromark parser (to tokenize frontmatter; can be passed in extensions) and the default HTML compiler (to ignore frontmatter; can be passed in htmlExtensions).

    options

    One preset or Matter, or an array of them, defining all the supported frontmatters (default: 'yaml').

    preset

    Either 'yaml' or 'toml':

    • 'yaml'matter defined as {type: 'yaml', marker: '-'}
    • 'toml'matter defined as {type: 'toml', marker: '+'}
    Matter

    An object with a type and either a marker or a fence:

    • type (string) — Type to tokenize as
    • marker (string or {open: string, close: string}) — Character used to construct fences. By providing an object with open and close. different characters can be used for opening and closing fences. For example the character '-' will result in '---' being used as the fence
    • fence (string or {open: string, close: string}) — String used as the complete fence. By providing an object with open and close different values can be used for opening and closing fences. This can be used too if fences contain different characters or lengths other than 3
    • anywhere (boolean, default: false) – if true, matter can be found anywhere in the document. If false (default), only matter at the start of the document is recognized
    Example

    For {type: 'yaml', marker: '-'}:

    ---
    key: value
    ---

    For {type: 'custom', marker: {open: '<', close: '>'}}:

    <<<
    data
    >>>

    For {type: 'custom', fence: '+=+=+=+'}:

    +=+=+=+
    data
    +=+=+=+

    For {type: 'json', fence: {open: '{', close: '}'}}:

    {
      "key": "value"
    }
