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.


A recent example: calendar even descriptions. It's a freeform description field, but people and tools often put links in the field and it'd be nice if they were clickable in your calendar.

@cassidyjames for JS there are quite a bit of solutions, we are migrating from Autolinker to linkify currently
