Flink – Linkparser Framework

Build Status Scrutinizer Coverage License

Parse a link, getting the images, the title and the description of the webpage.

This package includes a PHP library and a Linkparser Box plugin for jQuery.

Using Flink

See the demo/ directory for a usage example.


Install via Composer

Create a file called composer.json in your project directory and put the following into it:

    "require": {
        "flamecore/flink": "dev-master"

Install Composer if you don't already have it present on your system:

$ curl -sS | php

Use Composer to download the vendor libraries and generate the vendor/autoload.php file:

$ php composer.phar install

Include the vendor autoloader and use the classes:

namespace Acme\MyApplication;

use FlameCore\Flink\Flink;

require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';


  • You must have at least PHP version 5.3 installed on your system.
