Linky is a tiny jQuery plugin that automatically generate links for URLs (Github link), @mentions (Github, Twitter or Instagram), #hashtags (twitter) from your plain text.

Features:

  • For any URLs present, unless they are already identified within an `a` element, linkify them.
  • Find any mentions (e.g. @jqueryscript) and turn them into links that refer to the appropriate social profile (e.g. twitter or instagram).
  • Find any hashtags (e.g. #jqueryplugins) and turn them into links that refer to the appropriate social profile.

How to use it:

1. Add the jQuery javascript library and the jQuery linky plugin into your Html page.

<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script> 
<script src="jquery.linky.js"></script>

2. Call the plugin with options on the container elements that you want to apply the plugin on.

$(".url").linky();

$(".twitter-mentions").linky({
    mentions: true,
    urls: false,
    linkTo: "twitter"
});

$(".instagram-mentions").linky({
    mentions: true,
    urls: false,
    linkTo: "instagram"
});

$(".hashtags").linky({
    hashtags: true,
    urls: false,
    linkTo: "twitter"
});
