Autolink emails for your Jekyll site.


Add to your Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-autolink_email'

Add to your _config.yml:

  - jekyll-autolink_email


In any html page or post, emails will be autolinked. So if you write, the resulting html will be <a href=""></a>


Autolinking is done by Rinku so visit that gem for a more in-depth explanation of the configuration options:

  link_attr: class='email-link' # attributes to add to the link
  skip_tags: ['div']            # tags to skip

Jekyll::AutolinkEmail also provides a escape: true option. Turning this on will html encode the email address and url encode the link to prevent spam.
