A simple .net assembly to use to parse Open Graph information from either a URL or an HTML snippet. You can read more about the
Open Graph protocol @ http://ogp.me.

Usage

These are the basic operations of the OpenGraphNet parser.

Parsing from a URL

Synchronosly parse a url:

OpenGraph graph = OpenGraph.ParseUrl("https://open.spotify.com/user/er811nzvdw2cy2qgkrlei9sqe/playlist/2lzTTRqhYS6AkHPIvdX9u3?si=KcZxfwiIR7OBPCzj20utaQ");

Use async/await to parse a url:

OpenGraph graph = await OpenGraph.ParseUrlAsync("https://open.spotify.com/user/er811nzvdw2cy2qgkrlei9sqe/playlist/2lzTTRqhYS6AkHPIvdX9u3?si=KcZxfwiIR7OBPCzj20utaQ");

Acessing Values

Accessing Metadata

Each metadata element is is stored as an array. Additionally, each element's properties are also stored as an array.

<meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/img1.png">
<meta property="og:image:width" content="30">
<meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/img2.png">
<meta property="og:image:width" content="60">
<meta property="og:locale" content="en">
<meta property="og:locale:alternate" content="en_US">
<meta property="og:locale:alternate" content="en_GB">

You would access the values from the sample HTML above as:

  • graph.Metadata["og:image"].First().Value // "http://example.com/img1.png".
  • graph.Metadata["og:image"].First().Properties["width"].Value() // "30".
  • graph.Metadata["og:image"][1].Value // "http://example.com/img2.png".
  • graph.Metadata["og:image"][1].Properties["width"].Value() // "30".
  • graph.Metadata["og:locale"].Value() // "en"
  • graph.Metadata["og:locale"].First().Properties["alternate"][0].Value // "en_US"
  • graph.Metadata["og:locale"].First().Properties["alternate"][1].Value // "en_GB"

Basic Metadata

The four required Open Graph properties for all pages are available as direct properties on the OpenGraph object.

  • graph.Type is a shortcut for graph.Metadata["og:type"].Value()
  • graph.Title is a shortcut for graph.Metadata["og:title"].Value()
  • graph.Image is a shortcut for graph.Metadata["og:image"].Value()
    Note: since there can be multiple images, this helper returns the URI of the
    first image. If you want to access images or child properties like og:image:width then you
    should instead use the graph.Metadata dictionary.
  • graph.Url is a shortcut for graph.Metadata["og:url"].Value()

Creating OpenGraph Data

To create OpenGraph data in memory use the following code:

var graph = OpenGraph.MakeGraph(
    title: "My Title", 
    type: "website", 
    image: "http://example.com/img/img1.png", 
    url: "http://example.com/home", 
    description: "My Description", 
    siteName: "Example.com");
graph.AddMetadata("og", "image", "http://example.com/img/img2.png");
graph.Metadata["og:image"][0].AddProperty("width", "30");
graph.Metadata["og:image"][1].AddProperty("width", "60");
System.Console.Write(graph.ToString());

The previous System.Console.Write(graph.ToString()); will produce the following HTML (formatting added for legibility):

<meta property="og:title" content="My Title">
<meta property="og:type" content="website">
<meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/img/img1.png">
<meta property="og:image:width" content="30">
<meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/img/img2.png">
<meta property="og:image:width" content="60">
<meta property="og:url" content="http://example.com/home">
<meta property="og:description" content="My Description">
<meta property="og:site_name" content="Example.com">

Writing out OpenGraph Namespaces

In the wild web sites seem to add their OpenGraph namespaces in one of 2 ways. They either
write the namespaces in the html as xmlns attributes or within the head tag in the prefix attribute.

  • <html xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:product="http://ogp.me/ns/product#">
  • <head prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns# product: http://ogp.me/ns/product#">

xmlns: version in the html tag

To create the html version in an cshtml page after creating a new graph, use the following code:

<html @graph.HtmlXmlnsValues>

Would produce the following:

<html xmlns:og="http://ogp.me/ns#" xmlns:product="http://ogp.me/ns/product#">

prefix version in the <head> tag

To create the head version in a cshtml page, after create a new graph, use the following code:

<head prefix="@graph.HeadPrefixAttributeValue">

Would produce the following:

<head prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns# product: http://ogp.me/ns/product#">

Writing out OpenGraph Metadata to the head tag

Below is a complete example to write out a OpenGraph metadata to a page:

@{
    var graph = OpenGraph.MakeGraph(
        title: "My Title", 
        type: "website", 
        image: "http://example.com/img/img1.png", 
        url: "http://example.com/home", 
        description: "My Description", 
        siteName: "Example.com");
}
<html>
<head prefix="@graph.HeadPrefixAttributeValue">
    @graph.ToString()
</head>
<body>
    <!-- Your awesome page! -->
</body>
</html>

will produce the following HTML:

<html>
<head prefix="og: http://ogp.me/ns#">
    <meta property="og:title" content="My Title">
    <meta property="og:type" content="website">
    <meta property="og:image" content="http://example.com/img/img1.png">
    <meta property="og:url" content="http://example.com/home">
    <meta property="og:description" content="My Description">
    <meta property="og:site_name" content="Example.com">
</head>
<body>
    <!-- Your awesome page! -->
</body>
</html>
