  • Angular (requires Angular 2 or higher, tested with V7)

Requirements (peer dependencies):

npm i @angular/cdk @angular/material @angular/animations @angular/http 

or use angular schematics like e.g:

ng add @angular/material 

Additional requirements Theme (Material Design)


Install above dependencies via npm.

Now install @angular-material-extensions/link-preview via:

npm install --save @angular-material-extensions/link-preview


Note:If you are using SystemJS, you should adjust your configuration to point to the UMD bundle. In your systemjs config file, map needs to tell the System loader where to look for @angular-material-extensions/link-preview:

map: {
  '@angular-material-extensions/link-preview': 'node_modules/@angular-material-extensions/link-preview/bundles/link-preview.umd.js',

Once installed you need to import the main module:

import { MatLinkPreviewModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/link-preview';

The only remaining part is to list the imported module in your application module. The exact method will be slightly different for the root (top-level) module for which you should end up with the code similar to (notice MatLinkPreviewModule .forRoot()):

import { MatLinkPreviewModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/link-preview';

  declarations: [AppComponent, ...],
  imports: [MatLinkPreviewModule.forRoot(), ...],  
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule {

Other modules in your application can simply import MatLinkPreviewModule:

import { MatLinkPreviewModule } from '@angular-material-extensions/link-preview';

  declarations: [OtherComponent, ...],
  imports: [MatLinkPreviewModule, ...], 
export class OtherModule {



matLinkPreview used to find and parse links from any text input - should be used in combination with <mat-link-preview-container> to render and preview the found links


<mat-form-field class="demo-full-width" appearance="outline">
  <mat-label>Enter here your text here with few links to preview ;)</mat-label>
  <textarea matInput matTextareaAutosize matLinkPreview minRows="6"></textarea>


<mat-link-preview-container> the container that hold the links to preview

colorInput()stringprimarythe color to use for the button of the url - options --> primary | accent | warn

    <div fxLayout="column" fxLayoutAlign="center">

     <!-- here -->
      <mat-form-field class="demo-full-width" appearance="outline">
