github flavor markdown spec

A block quote marker consists of 0-3 spaces of initial indent, plus

  • a) the character > together with a following space, or
  • b) a single character > not followed by a space.

The following rules define block quotes:

  1. Basic case. If a string of lines LsL_s constitute a sequence of blocks BsB_s, then the result of prepending a block quote marker to the beginning of each line in LsL_s is a block quote containing BsB_s.

  2. Laziness. If a string of lines LsL_s constitute a [block quote]gfm-blockquote] with contents Bs, then the result of deleting the initial block quote marker from one or more lines in which the next non-whitespace character after the block quote marker is paragraph continuation text is a block quote with BsB_s as its content. Paragraph continuation text is text that will be parsed as part of the content of a paragraph, but does not occur at the beginning of the paragraph.

  3. Consecutiveness. A document cannot contain two block quotes in a row unless there is a blank line between them.

@yozora/tokenizer-blockquote produce Blockquote type nodes. See @yozora/ast for full base types.

import type { Parent } from '@yozora/ast'

export const BlockquoteType = 'blockquote'
export type BlockquoteType = typeof BlockquoteType
