Android TextView LinkBuilder Library
One of the major issues I faced when creating Talon for Twitter
was adding custom clickable links (without using TextView's autoLink
functionality, which kinda sucks in most cases). This feature took by far the most time, research, failing, and experimenting of anything that I have put into the app so far.
Today, I am happy to announce a new library that I made to simplify this process. It makes creating clickable links super
easy. Basically just specify the text (or regular expression) you want to create links for, then add a click action and some styling if you want to.
All the major players use this kind of thing in their apps (Google+, Twitter, etc.) and now you can too. Enjoy and if you have suggestions, issues, or pull requests, feel free to send them my way. I'm very happy with how this project turned out and hopeful that some people enjoy it and use it in their own apps.
I have used it in one of my projects for work already and it has been incredibly helpful.https://github.com/klinker24/Android-TextView-LinkBuilder
Although I have had plenty of open source contributions in the past, this is the first actual library project I created by myself :) so I am pretty pumped about this and what you can do with it.
Let me know what you think!
