Setup and Usage

Add AutoLinkTextView to your layout

<io.github.armcha.autolink.AutoLinkTextView
    android:id="@+id/autolinkTextView"
    android:layout_width="wrap_content"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />
val autoLinkTextView = findViewById<AutoLinkTextView>(R.id.autolinkTextView);

Add one or multiple modes

autoLinkTextView.addAutoLinkMode(
                MODE_HASHTAG,
                MODE_URL)

Add url transformations for transforming them to short clickable text

autoLinkTextView.addUrlTransformations(
                "https://google.com" to "Google",
                "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wear_OS" to "Wear OS")

Or you can attach urlProcessor and transform it

autoLinkTextView.attachUrlProcessor { originalUrl: String ->
    when {
        originalUrl.startsWith("https://en.wikipedia") -> "Wiki"
        originalUrl.contains("android") -> "Android"
        else -> originalUrl
    }
}

Add one or multiple spans to specific mode

autoLinkTextView.addSpan(MODE_URL, StyleSpan(Typeface.ITALIC), UnderlineSpan())
autoLinkTextView.addSpan(MODE_HASHTAG, UnderlineSpan(), TypefaceSpan("monospace"))

Set AutoLinkTextView click listener

autoLinkTextView.onAutoLinkClick { item: AutoLinkItem ->
}

autoLinkTextView.text = getString(R.string.android_text)
