Linkify is a small yet comprehensive JavaScript plugin for finding URLs in plain-text and converting them to HTML links. It works with all valid URLs and email addresses.


  • Accuracy
    Linkify uses a (close to) complete list of valid top-level domains to ensure that only valid URLs and email addresses are matched.
  • Speed
    Each string is analyzed exactly once to detect every kind of linkable entity
  • Extensibility
    Linkify is designed to be fast and lightweight, but comes with a powerful plugin API that lets you detect even more information like #hashtags and @mentions.
  • Small footprint
    Linkify and its jQuery interface clock in at approximately 15KB minified (5KB gzipped) - approximately 50% the size of Twitter Text
  • Modern implementation
    Linkify is written in ECMAScript6 and compiles to ES5 for modern JavaScript runtimes.
    • Linkify is compatible with all modern browsers, as well as Internet Explorer 8 and up.
