The enflow/component-spam-filter package provides a easy way to check if a given text matches any of the blacklists.

Component is based on IQAndreas/php-spam-filter.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require enflow/component-spam-filter


use Enflow\Component\SpamFilter\SpamFilter;

$spamFilter = new SpamFilter();

$spamFilter->isPossibleSpam('fun gambling'); // true
$spamFilter->isPossibleSpam('keyword or full text without blacklisted words'); // false

To use a custom blacklist, specify your path in the constructor like where the *.txt files reside:

use Enflow\Component\SpamFilter\SpamFilter;

$spamFilter = new SpamFilter('path/to/blacklist');
