markdown-linkify

Turn plain URLs in text into Markdown links. Works in the browser and on the server.

Usage

  1. Input: "Made by folks from https://spectrum.chat"
  2. Output: "Made by folks from [https://spectrum.chat](https://spectrum.chat)"
const linkify = require('markdown-linkify');

const text = 'Made by folks from https://spectrum.chat'
const linked = linkify(text);

console.log(linked)
// -> 'Made by folks from [https://spectrum.chat](http://spectrum.chat)'

We use linkify-it to detect URLs which supports major TLDs without protocol (google.com, facebook.net etc) and everything that uses a protocol. (e.g. https://bla.bullshit, mailto:hi@spectrum.chat) We err on the side of being certain and not-linkifying rather than over-linkifying.

Installation

npm install --save markdown-linkify
# or if you have yarn installed
yarn add markdown-linkify
