Takes a string, returns a url friendly string. Works in browser and node. Dead simple.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import slugger from '';



Dead simple slugification for node and browser.

What it does:

Converts any string into a url friendly version:

slugger('Hello yOu CRAZY Swede!'); // returns 'hello-you-crazy-swede'

// optionally maintain case
slugger('Hello yOu CRAZY Swede!', {maintainCase: true}); // returns 'Hello-yOu-CRAZY-Swede'

// optionally use a different replacement character
slugger('Hello yOu CRAZY Swede!', {replacement: '_'}); // returns 'hello_you_crazy_swede'

// optionally trim to max length while not breaking any words
slugger('Hello yOu CRAZY Swede!', {smartTrim: 9}); // returns 'hello-you'

// optionally allow additional characters
// just pass string of characters that would normally be removed
// that you want to allow.
slugger('Hello yOu CRAZY Swede!', {alsoAllow: "!&"}); // returns 'hello-you-crazy-swede!'

// decodes URI components by default, so {decode: true} is not required
slugger('boo%20boo') // returns 'boo-boo';
// now without decode
slugger('boo%20boo', {decode: false}) // returns boo20boo;

That's all there is to it!


npm install slugger

Or just grab the slugger.js file and drop it into your project.

It also plays nicely with:

Why did I write this when there's already ?

Because I wanted something simpler that didn't try to do anything with special characters or unicode and I wanted something that worked well in the browser or node.


Just run npm test
