[FEATURE] Allow hyperlinks in profile's bio section

See original GitHub issue


It will be a nice feature that allows users to add hyperlinks in their bio section. Users can add links to their previous & current works, contributions, etc.


A user profile data, Which has a link in bio 👇

  "name": "Eddie Jaoude",
  "type": "personal",
  "bio": "Founder of <a href=''>@EddieHubCommunity</a>",
  "avatar": "",
  "links": ["..."]



Additional information

My solution :-

In src/Components/Profile.js component, Check bio prop contains hyperlinks(anchor tags) using the below regex 👇

const regex = /<a[\s]+([^>]+)>((?:.(?!\<\/a\>))*.)<\/a>/gi;

If it does not contain hyperlinks render the bio. If it contains the hyperlink render a new component, which converts the string hyperlinks to the anchor tags.

Isn’t this the purpose of all the links and milestones under the bio though?

This is now allowed with the use of markdown in the bio 👍
