  • How To Parse and Render Markdown In Vuejs
    6 projects | | 26 Aug 2021
    Vue does not have as much support for Vue as there is for React. Examples are markdown-it, Remark.js, marked.js. But hopefully in the future, there should be more support, and after much research, I picked marked.js because it has the most stars and has zero vulnerability. Marked does not sanitize (meaning it does not secure HTML documents from attacks like cross-site scripting (XSS) ) marked output HTML as that feature is deprecated and has vulnerability but however, it supports the use of other libraries to secure output HTML such as DOMPurify (recommended), sanitize-html or insane.
