v2.0.1(almost 4 years ago)
Both Micromark and Remarkable are popular npm packages in the Markdown parsing and processing domain. However, Remarkable has been around for longer and has a larger user base and community support.
Size and Performance
Micromark is designed to be an extremely fast and lightweight Markdown parser, making it suitable for environments where performance is a key consideration. It has a minimalistic design and smaller bundle size compared to Remarkable. Remarkable, on the other hand, is slightly larger and may have a small performance overhead, but it offers more features and options for customization.
Features and Customization
Remarkable provides a more extensive set of features by default, including support for tables, footnotes, and syntax highlighting. It also allows for more fine-grained customization of the Markdown parsing and rendering process. Micromark, on the other hand, focuses on simplicity and provides a minimalistic feature set, suitable for basic Markdown parsing needs.
Documentation and Community
Both packages have good documentation and active communities. Remarkable, being the older and more widely adopted package, has a larger community and more resources available, including tutorials, examples, and plugins. Micromark, despite being newer, has gained popularity and has a growing community around it.
