Is there open-source code for making 'link preview' text and icons, like in facebook?

In facebook, when you share a link, a neat little preview is created with an image headline, and text excerpt. Here's an example..

Does anyone know if there's any open-source code (pref. php & javascript/jquery) that can generate something like this? Or should I just write it myself..

Cheers!

After a bit of Googling I found this for you.

Embedly provides a powerful API to convert standard URLs into embedded videos, images, and rich article previews.I Searched and found an easy way to do it.

Just make a Get request to http://api.embed.ly/1/oembed?url=YOUR-URL . You will find everything in json Format.


Have a look at bootstrap-linkpreview js library as well. It should fit exactly your needs.
