What is this?

This package provides a (lint) message format.

When should I use this?

In most cases, you can use file.message from VFile itself, but in some cases you might not have a file, and still want to emit warnings or errors, in which case this can be used directly.

Install

This package is ESM onlyesm. In Node.js (version 14.14+, 16.0+), install with npm:
npm install vfile-message

In Deno with esm.shesmsh:
import {VFileMessage} from 'https://esm.sh/vfile-message@3'

In browsers with esm.shesmsh:
<script type="module">
  import {VFileMessage} from 'https://esm.sh/vfile-message@3?bundle'
</script>

Use

import {VFileMessage} from 'vfile-message'

const message = new VFileMessage(
  'Unexpected unknown word `braavo`, did you mean `bravo`?',
  {line: 1, column: 8},
  'spell:typo'
)

console.log(message)

Yields:
[1:8: Unexpected unknown word `braavo`, did you mean `bravo`?] {
  reason: 'Unexpected unknown word `braavo`, did you mean `bravo`?',
  line: 1,
  column: 8,
  source: 'spell',
  ruleId: 'typo',
  position: {start: {line: 1, column: 8}, end: {line: null, column: null}}
}

API

This package exports the identifier VFileMessage. There is no default export.

VFileMessage(reason[, place][, origin])

Create a message for reason at place from origin. When an error is passed in as reason, the stack is copied.
Parameters
reason
Reason for message (string or Error). Uses the stack and message of the error if given.
place
Place at which the message occurred in a file (Nodenode, Positionposition, or Pointpoint, optional).
origin
Place in code the message originates from (string, optional).
Can either be the ruleIdruleid ('rule'), or a string with both a sourcesource and a ruleIdruleid delimited with a colon ('source:rule').
Extends
Errorerror.
Returns
An instance of itself.
Properties
reason
Reason for message (string).
fatal
Whether this is a fatal problem that marks an associated file as no longer processable (boolean?). If true, marks associated file as no longer processable. If false, necessitates a (potential) change. The value can also be null or undefined, for things that might not need changing.
line
Starting line of error (number?).
column
Starting column of error (number?).
position
Full range information, when available (Positionposition). Has start and end properties, both set to an object with line and column, set to number?.
source
Namespace of message (string?, example: 'my-package').
ruleId
Category of message (string?, example: 'my-rule-name').
stack
Stack of message (string?).
file
Path of a file (used throughout the vfile ecosystem).

Well-known fields

It’s OK to store custom data directly on the VFileMessage, some of those are handled by utilitiesutil.
actual
Specify the source value that’s being reported, which is deemed incorrect (string?).
expected
Suggest values that should be used instead of actual, one or more values that are deemed as acceptable ((string|Array<string>)?)
url
Link to documentation for the message (string).
note
Long form description of the message (supported by vfile-reporterreporter).
