Hashtagger is an ultra-light jQuery plugin for converting # symbols into clickable Twitter hashtags which can be used to mark Twitter keywords or topics.

How to use it:

1. Hashtagger requires jQuery library loaded properly in the html page.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.2.min.js"></script>
<script src="hashtagger.js"></script>

2. Call the function to active the plugin. By default, the plugin looks up #symbols within "div, p, li, ul, a, strong" and then converts them into Twitter hashtags.


3. Available options.


  // default elements
  elements: "div, p, li, ul, a, strong",

  // CSS class applied to the hashtags
  hashClass: "hashtag"

4. Style the hashtags whatever you like.

.hashtag { ... }

Change log:


  • Added if statement that could cause lazy load to fail
