WordPress utility classes.

2.1.10 2014-08-25 14:22 UTC


A small set of utilities to speed up WordPress development.


A utility class that will make dealing with script and style suffix a breeze. Depending on the SCRIPT_DEBUG constant it will try to enqueue the minified or non minified version of the script or style.

$path = get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/assets/css/theme_style.css';
$debugDependantPath = tad_Script::suffix($path);

wp_enqueue_style('theme-style', $debugDependantPath);


Will make string conversion to go from one naming convention to another.

$string = 'some_name_here';

// someNameHere
$out = tad_Str::camelBack($string);
// some-name-here
$out = tad_Str::hyphen($string);
// some_name_here
$out = tad_Str::underscore($string);
// SomeNameHere
$out = tad_Str::camelCase($string);
// some/name/here (some\name\here on Win)
$out = tad_Str::toPath($string);

it also packs some methods to split strings into lines on a char or word basis with html tags preservation.

$in = "lorem ipsum some other stuff here"

// lorem ipsum some other...
$out = tad_Str::atMostChars($in, 25, '...');

// <span class="line">lorem ipsum</span>
// <span class="line">some other</span>
// <span class="line">stuff here</span>
$out = tad_Str::splitLinesByWords($in, 2);

$in = 'some words are longer than others'

// <span class="line">some words are longer</span>
// <span class="line">than others</span>
$out = tad_Str::splitLinesByChars($in, 25);


Array utilities.


A quasi WordPress specific set of functions meant to make printing JavaScript objects on the page easy. The class will take care to print objects containing callback functions too.

$in = array(
    'value' => 'hello there',
    'callback' => 'function(){alert("hello there");}'

$out = tad_JsObject::on($in)->getOut();

// or print on the page in WordPress
