Hey GNOME/GTK/Vala peeps: is there an easy way to detect arbitrary links in text in order to hyperlink them? I have seen app developers doing this pretty manually in a few places and never know if I should recommend an easier way.
@cassidyjames for JS there are quite a bit of solutions, we are migrating from Autolinker to linkify currently
@cassidyjames Yeah, you need to deal with links manually. GtkTreeView does not have any automatic mechanism to detect and present "links".
@cassidyjames Not really what you're looking for, but for #giara I made a thingamajig that translates markdown into Pango markup. It should detect random links as well as far as I remember. It could be a good idea to have a proper GNOME/Gtk/Pango library to do this translation, given how ubiquitous markdown is.
