linkable pub package #

A Flutter widget to add links to your text. By default, the Text or RichText widgets render the URLs in them as simple text which are not clickable. So, Linkable widget is a wrapper over RichText which allows you to render links that can be clicked to redirect to the URL. That means that a Linkable widget supports all the attributes of a RichText Widget.

Currently linkable supports the following types:

Note: You don't need to specify the URL scheme (mailto, tel etc). The widget will parse it automatically.
