Octocat-spinner-32 stocktwits-text.js


A Javascript library that provides text processing routines for StockTwits Messages. This library provides autolinking and extraction for cashtags (e.g. $GOOG).

Cashtag Examples


stwt.txt.extractCashtags("$FOO $BAR")
→ ['FOO', 'BAR']


// Default
→ '<a class="stwt-url cashtag" href="">$FOO</a>'

// Options
stwt.txt.autoLinkCashtags("$FOO", { urlClass: 'foo bar', urlTarget: '_blank', urlNofollow: true });
→ '<a class="foo bar" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="">$FOO</a>'

// URL interpolation
stwt.txt.autoLinkCashtags("$FOO", { url: "" })
→ '<a class="stwt-url cashtag" href="">$FOO</a>'

// Callback
stwt.txt.autoLinkCashtags("$FOO", function(cashtag, symbol) {
  return "<a href=\"/symbol/" + symbol + "\">" + cashtag + "</a>"
→ '<a href="/symbol/FOO">$FOO</a>'

Using with jQuery

var contentHtml = $('#content').html();


This library is modeled after Twitter's excellent text processing libraries.
