I"m using this plugin (jekyll-mentions) to substitute all my mentions with the mentions from twitter.
Now I would like to substitute my predifined hashtags like
##tagme into the corresponding tag anchor text on my site.
I’m not into ruby dev, so not willing to spend more time in creating a GEM plugin. Can anyone give me some pointers as to how I can do it in my jekyll folder under _plugins ?
According to what you have described - you might get away with a simple
:post_render Jekyll hook (https://jekyllrb.com/docs/plugins/#hooks)
jekyll-mentions plugin, actually uses that model (a
:post_render hook in Jekyll) that yields you more control over the generated content and there you can simply manipulate the content any way you want.
Oh, and by the way - you can simply copy/paste
jekyll-mentions.rb from the plugin into your
_plugins folder, tweak to your taste and get what you need in less than 30 minutes.
Hope that helps.
