Add links to a text (take II)

Mind that age!

This blog post is 16 years old! Most likely, its content is outdated. Especially if it's technical.

If you missed the entry about Add links to text with URLs I suggest you read that first. This script has now been improved with bug fixes thanks to David Otton and Flump Cakes.

Download: addhrefs-0.4.tgz
It does not come with a nice installer because I don't think it belongs to the generic Python library anyway. If you want to use it, copy the file addhrefs.py to somewhere useful.

This is how it works:

>>> from addhrefs import addhrefs
>>> t='''Hello www.peterbe.com
and peterbe.com go to http://user:pass@google.ca
send to mail@email.com 
or <here@there.com>'''
>>> print addhrefs(t)
Hello <a href="https://www.peterbe.com">www.peterbe.com</a>
and peterbe.com go to <a  href="http://user:pass@google.ca">http://user:pass@google.ca</a>
send to <a href="mailto:mail@email.com">mail@email.com</a> 
or <<a  href="mailto:here@there.com">here@there.com</a>>

The example might be confusing since the Python code highlighter tries to do what addhrefs does.

UPDATE: Link to addhrefs-0.4.tgz didn't work before. Now it does.
