Manipulate sections in a markdown string. A 'section' is a block of content preceded by a valid markdown ATX heading.

Install

Install with npm:
$ npm install --save sections

Install with yarn:

Usage

This is meant to be fast and opinionated, and only works with ATX headings.
var sections = require('sections');
var obj = sections.parse(str);

API

.parse

.parse

Parses sections in a string of markdown and returns an object with two properties:
  • sections: an array of markdown "sections", delimited by ATX headings,
  • result: the cumulative result of whatever is returned by the (optional) function that is passed as the second argument.
Returns an object that looks something like this
Params
  • string {String}
  • fn {Function}
  • returns {Object}

Example
var fs = require('fs');
var readme = fs.readFileSync('readme.md', 'utf8');
var sections = require('sections');
console.log(sections.parse(readme));


.format

.format

Format sections. By default, if no filter function is passed, this filters out empty sections fixes whitespace between sections.
Params
  • str {String}: Markdown string
  • fn {Function}: optional filter function
  • returns {String}


.sortBy

.sortBy

Sort the sections in a parsed sections object, by the given prop and array of values.
Params
  • obj {Object}: Object returned from .parse
  • prop {String|Array}: Defaults to title. The property to sort by, or the array of values to sort by.
  • values {Array}: Array of values to sort by.
  • returns {Object}


.render

.render

Renders the array of sections from .parse.
Params
  • obj {Object}: Sections object returned from .parse
  • values {Array}: (optional) To sort the array of sections by title, pass an array of values to sort by.
  • returns {String}

Example
var fs = require('fs');
var readme = fs.readFileSync('readme.md', 'utf8');
var sections = require('sections');
var obj = sections.parse(readme);
var str = sections.render(obj);
console.log(str);

Example object

The parsed object that is returned looks something like this:
{ sections:
   [ Section {
       pos: 12,
       count: 0,
       string: '# sections \n',
       heading: '# sections',
       level: 1,
       title: 'sections',
       body: '' },
     Section {
       pos: 32,
       count: 1,
       string: '\n## Foo\nThis is foo\n',
       heading: '## Foo',
       level: 2,
       title: 'Foo',
       body: 'This is foo' },
     Section {
       pos: 52,
       count: 2,
       string: '\n## Bar\nThis is bar\n',
       heading: '## Bar',
       level: 2,
       title: 'Bar',
       body: 'This is bar' },

       pos: 72,
       count: 3,

       level: 2,
       title: 'Baz',
