Since Asciidoctor 1.5.0 we can use the document attribute
hide-uri-scheme to turn URLs into links, where the link text is displayed without the URI scheme. This can save typing when we simply want to add a URL without any special description.
In the next Asciidoc syntax we first define URLs without the
hide-uri-scheme attribute, followed by URLs after the attribute is set:
Reference to http://www.mrhaki.com is turned into link + `+<a href="http://www.mrhaki.com">http://www.mrhaki.com</a>+`. To loose URI scheme we could write the link as http://www.mrhaki.com[www.mrhaki.com]. Or we can use the new attribute `hide-uri-scheme` which is added to Asciidoctor 1.5.0. :hide-uri-scheme: After applying the `hide-uri-scheme` attribute the URI scheme is removed from the text in links. So a reference to http://www.mrhaki.com is turned into the link + `+<a href="http://www.mrhaki.com">www.mrhaki.com</a>+` This also works for other URI schemes like `file`. For example file:///Users/mrhaki/file.txt is translated to + `+<a href="file:///Users/mrhaki/file.txt">/Users/mrhaki/file.txt</a>+`.
When we generate output using the HTML backend we see the following output:
