unist utility to get positional info of nodes.

What is this?

This utility helps with accessing positional info on a potentially dirty tree.

When should I use this?

The positional info is typically consistent and proper in unist trees generated by our ecosystem, but, user plugins could mess that up. If you’re making a reusable plugin, and accessing the positional info often, you might want to guard against that by using this utility.
You might also find the utility unist-util-generatedunist-util-generated useful to check whether a node is considered to be generated (not in the original input file).
You might also enjoy unist-util-stringify-positionunist-util-stringify-position when you want to display positional info to users.

Install

This package is ESM onlyesm. In Node.js (version 14.14+ and 16.0+), install with npm:
npm install unist-util-position

In Deno with esm.shesmsh:
import {position, pointStart, pointEnd} from 'https://esm.sh/unist-util-position@4'

In browsers with esm.shesmsh:
<script type="module">
  import {position, pointStart, pointEnd} from 'https://esm.sh/unist-util-position@4?bundle'
</script>

Use

import {fromMarkdown} from 'mdast-util-from-markdown'
import {position, pointStart, pointEnd} from 'unist-util-position'

const tree = fromMarkdown('# foo\n\n* bar\n')

console.log(position(tree))
console.log(pointStart(tree))
console.log(pointEnd(tree))

Yields:
{start: {line: 1, column: 1, offset: 0}, end: {line: 4, column: 1, offset: 13}}
{line: 1, column: 1, offset: 0}
{line: 4, column: 1, offset: 13}
