(Note: this extension is included by default within the GFM extension)
AutolinkExtension adds GFM-style autolinking. It automatically links URLs and email addresses even when the CommonMark
<...> autolink syntax is not used.
This extension is bundled with
league/commonmark. This library can be installed via Composer:
composer require league/commonmark
See the installation section for more details.
Environment as usual and simply add the
AutolinkExtension provided by this package:
use League\CommonMark\Environment; use League\CommonMark\Extension\Autolink\AutolinkExtension; use League\CommonMark\MarkdownConverter; // Obtain a pre-configured Environment with all the CommonMark parsers/renderers ready-to-go $environment = Environment::createCommonMarkEnvironment(); // Add this extension $environment->addExtension(new AutolinkExtension()); // Set your configuration if needed $environment->mergeConfig([ // ... ]); // Instantiate the converter engine and start converting some Markdown! $converter = new MarkdownConverter($environment); echo $converter->convertToHtml('I successfully installed the https://github.com/thephpleague/commonmark project with the Autolink extension!');
As of v1.5, mention autolinking is now handled by a separate Mention extension.
