    Tiny, fast, efficient, feature rich Javascript library to detect links / URLs / Emails in text and convert them to clickable HTML anchor links.

    Getting Started, Documentations, Demos and more

    What's Included

    • Sensitivity: It's Highly sensitive with the least false positives.
      • It validates URLs and Emails against full IANA list
      • Validates port numbers (if present)
      • Validates IP octet numbers (if present)
    • Robustness:
      • Skips HTML, so it doesn't break your HTML if it had a URL as an attribute for an element.
      • Links with or without protocols.
      • Works with IPs, FTPs, Emails and files.
      • Can detect parenthesis and quotation marks as part of the URL or as a surrounding to the URL.
    • Fast: It's definitely fast! processing H.G. Wells The Time Machine novel with over 1500 URLs inserted at random places takes only 3.5 seconds.
    • Light Weight: Although it's a feature rich library with a full IANA list included, it's only 6KB when minified and gzipped.
