Angular Hashtag and Mentions Colorizer

A small library to detect and color mentions and hashtags in texts

NPM Version Downloads Stats

This library finds hashtags and mentions in a text and applies a chosen color to them.


npm install ng-hashtag-mention-colorizer --save

Usage example

This library was developed to highlight hashtags and mentions in tweets coming from Twitter API. It can be used with every social network feed since it just takes a string as parameter and finds hashtags and mentions in it returning a copy of the same string with the found elements colored.

To use the functionality, add the library module to your app:

import { HashtagMentionColLibModule } from 'dist/hashtag-mention-col-lib';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [BrowserModule, HashtagMentionColLibModule],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {}

At this point, it is possible to use the pipe in our templates. ATTENTION: The pipe only works by passing the processed string to an HTML element throught the [innerHtml] property.

It is possible to assign a custom color to ashtags and mentions. In case no color is defined, the library will use the default color #1ca1f3

<div class="container">
  <span [innerHTML]="hashtag | hmColor"></span>
  <span [innerHTML]="mention | hmColor: '#18BE63'"></span>
