Edit fiddle - JSFiddle
This is actually kind of impressive. Of course the hard work is the markdown compiler that gets imported. And I've forgotten what lodash is. And this was on a demo page, but I don't see vue in the code here, so I think the idea on the vue page is to demonstrate how easy it is to import this.

Dijkstra was right — recursion should not be difficult
Some philosophy about how to approach recursion. Don't try to visualize every step, that's for sure. Plenty of recursion examples. You should learn.

GitHub - deniskyashif/ssfst: Subsequential Transducer for Efficient "Dictionary-Based" Text Rewriting
This kind of looks like it does what sed does but there are apparently differences. It has a fancy name, and for some reason, though I barely skimmed it, it had a useful vibe about it.
