Configuration

Configuration file

The configuration file is the rules and/or options that load on markuplint executes. That is usually automatic loading, But you also can load explicitly if use CLI or API.

The automatic loading is recursively searching up from a directory that the target exists. In other words, It is applying that configure files that the closest each the target.

Format and Filename

You can get even if the filename is not .markuplintrc. If you use .markuplintrc, You can get even if the format is YAML not JSON.

The priority applied names are:

  • markuplint property in package.json
  • markuplintrc.json, markuplintrc.yaml, markuplintrc.yml, markuplintrc.js, or markuplintrc.cjs
  • markuplint.config.js or markuplint.config.cjs

Properties

parser

Set a regular expression that can identify the target file name to the key, and the parser module path to the value.

{
    "parser": {
        ".vue$": "@markuplint/vue-parser",
        ".pug$": "@markuplint/pug-parser",
        ".svelte$": "@markuplint/svelte-parser",
        ".any$": "./path/to/custom-parser/any-lang"
    }
}

specs

Add the spec module path to this array.

{
    "specs": ["@markuplint/vue-spec", "./path/to/custom-specs/any-lang"]
}

extends

If set another configuration file path then the current setting is merged with it.

{
    "extends": ["../../.markuplintrc"]
}

rules

And add some rules to this property.

{
    "rules": {
        "rule-name": "value" // Add to here or more
    }
}

Basically, Set the boolean to value. If it is the boolean a switching the enabled and the disabled. Or set a value given each rule. Those are any string, any number, and an array. And if the value is the Object type, it should be this structure like:

{
    // Type: string | number | boolean | Array
    "value": "any-value",

    // Optional, "error" or "warning"
    "severity": "error",

    // Optional
    "option": {
        "any-option": "any-optional-value"
    }
}

The detail of Each rule is said from the Rules page.

For example, setting of the rule of invalid-attr:

{
    "rule": {
        "invalid-attr": {
            "value": true,
            "severity": "warning",
            "option": {
                "attrs": {
                    "x-attr": {
                        "enum": ["value1", "value2", "value3"]
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

nodeRules

If you want only any specific element to apply some rule, you can set by this property. Be careful the value is an array. You can set the rules property of this property like the rules property of the root.

{
    "nodeRules": [
        {
            "tagName": "main",
            "rules": {
                "class-naming": "/[a-z]+(__[a-z]+)?/"
            }
        }
    ]
}

The tagName allows only element name but allows "#text" if it is the text node exceptionally.

childNodeRules

If you want only any specific element and/or scope to apply some rule, you can set by this property. If set true to inheritance property then affects all descendant nodes of the target element. Be careful the value is an array. You can set the rules property of this property like the rules property of the root.

{
    "childNodeRules": [
        {
            "selector": ".ignoreClass",
            "inheritance": true,
            "rules": {
                "character-reference": true
            }
        }
    ]
}
