flowdock-text

Flowdock-text is a javascript utility for extracting and linkifying hashtags and URLs in Flowdock. It is built upon Twitter's twitter-text-js. Some twitter-text's functionality has been removed or altered.

Usage

Extraction

Hashtag extraction

FlowdockText.extractHashtags("hello #world");
[ 'world' ]
FlowdockText.extractHashtagsWithIndices("hello #world");
[ { tag: 'world', indices: [ 6, 12 ] } ]

Usertag extraction

FlowdockText.extractMentions("hello @Username");
[ '@Username' ]
FlowdockText.extractMentionsWithIndices("hello @Username");
[ { tag: '@Username', indices: [ 6, 15 ] } ]

URL extraction

FlowdockText.extractUrls("hello http://www.example.com");
[ 'http://www.example.com' ]
FlowdockText.extractUrlsWithIndices("hello http://www.example.com");
[ { url: 'http://www.example.com', indices: [ 6, 28 ] } ]

Linkification

FlowdockText.autoLink("hello @Username #greets");
'hello <a title="Search @Username" class="app-tag-link" href="#flowser/all/@Username">@Username</a> <a href="#flowser/all/greets" title="#greets" class="app-tag-link">#greets</a>'

Parsing all tags from new messages

If you need to replicate the functionality that Flowdock uses to parse tags from new messages, you can use parseTags.

FlowdockText.parseTags("@anyone seen this: http://www.example.com #cool");
[ 'cool', ':url', ':user:everyone' ]

Parse and process tags from a message with optional array of user-objects

var users = [
  {nick: "Username", id: 1, disabled: false},
  {nick: "Other", id: 2, disabled: false}
];
FlowdockText.parseTags("@anyone seen this: http://www.example.com #cool", users);
[ 'cool', ':url', ':user:everyone', ':unread:1', ':unread:2' ]

Parse and process tags from a message with optional array of user-objects and me-object (which excludes :unread:my-id tag from the results)

var users = [
  {nick: "Username", id: 1, disabled: false},
  {nick: "Other", id: 2, disabled: false}
];
var me = users[1];
FlowdockText.parseTags("@anyone seen this: http://www.example.com #cool", users, me);
[ 'cool', ':url', ':user:everyone', ':unread:1' ]

Tagging a single user

var users = [
  {nick: "Username", id: 1, disabled: false},
  {nick: "Other", id: 2, disabled: false}
];
var me = users[1];
FlowdockText.parseTags("@Username, what do you think?", users, me);
[ ':user:1', ':unread:1' ]

Mentioning a single user

var users = [
  {nick: "Username", id: 1, disabled: false},
  {nick: "Other", id: 2, disabled: false}
];
var me = users[1];
FlowdockText.parseTags("Username, what do you think?", users, me);
[ ':highlight:1', ':unread:1' ]

NPM

Install with: npm install flowdock-text

var FlowdockText = require("flowdock-text");
FlowdockText.extractUrlsWithIndices("cool http://www.example.com");
[ { url: 'http://www.example.com', indices: [ 6, 28 ] } ]
