citation-linker

Adds links to legal citations within Markdown text.

Installation

$ npm install citation-linker
citationLinker = require("citation-linker");

// dumb hack for multi-line string
var text = 
  [
    '- a list',
    '- of things',
    '- and stuff',
    '',
    'foo',
    'apples',
    'pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(1)(E) and',
    'also pursuant to 47 C.F.R. Part 15',
    'and something else from: D.C. Official Code §§ 38-2602(b)(11)'
  ].join('\n');

var pagedown = require("pagedown");
var safeConverter = pagedown.getSanitizingConverter();

citationLinker.addCitationLinkerToPagedownConverter(safeConverter);

console.log(safeConverter.makeHtml(text));

Output:

<ul>
<li>a list</li>
<li>of things</li>
<li>and stuff</li>
</ul>

<p>foo
