Link Preview Generator

Pub build CodeFactor License Donate

A cross-platform flutter package to convert your links into rich beautiful previews.
This package is inspired from Any Link Preview package, but the entire parsing & scrapping logic has been re-written to be more robust & to support more links. It also provides control over complete customization of the widget.


Widget Example

import 'package:link_preview_generator/link_preview_generator.dart';

/// Generate a beautiful link preview card widget
    bodyMaxLines: 3,
    link: '',
    linkPreviewStyle: LinkPreviewStyle.large,
    showGraphic: true,

Function Example

import 'package:link_preview_generator/link_preview_generator.dart';

/// Pass the URL to be parsed/scraped
/// to build your own custom widget with parsed data
final WebInfo info = await LinkPreview.scrapeFromURL('');

/// Description of the page.
final String description = info.description;

/// Domain name of the link.
final String domain = info.domain;

/// Favicon of the page.
final String icon = info.icon;

/// Image URL, if present any in the link.
final String image = info.image;

/// Title of the page.
final String title = info.title;

/// Link preview type of the rule used for scrapping the link.
/// Returns [LinkPreviewType.error] if the scrapping is failed.
final LinkPreviewType type = info.type;

/// Video URL, if present any in the link.
final String video =;
