Link to some URL defined ahead in the document

suy
Hello.

I think this is something probably already asked, and probably reported
already, but I can't find it in the issue tracker.

I often use long URLs, so using an attribute for them is great:

--
:homepage: http://asciidoctor.org

Check out {homepage}[Asciidoctor]!
--

But, I would like to be able to define the URL afterwards, and I think it's
what other people might like as well (at least some of the times), and is the
only feature I would pick from Markdown. Something like this:

https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/wiki/Markdown-Cheatsheet#links

So, what do you think? Is this reported somewhere else?

Thank you!

I agree. I do this now for all URIs. I prefer to prefix the attributes so I know that it refers to a URI.


Check out {uri-home}[Asciidoctor].

p.s. Of course, if you prefer to call them URLs, then use the url- prefix. (See http://www.bernzilla.com/item.php?id=100)
