Basic Usage

This library may be used the following way :

use PhpExtended\Slugifier\SlugifierFactory;

$factory = new SlugifierFactory();
$slugifier = $factory->createSlugifier();
/* @var $slugifier \PhpExtended\Slugifier\SlugifierInterface */

There are different types of slugifiers available in this library :

  • The AsciiCutSlugifier removes all characters from the input string that are not digits or letters.
  • The LowercaseSlugifier transforms the input string to lowercase
  • The UppercaseSlugifier transforms the input string to uppercase
  • The NoopSlugifier returns the input string untouched
  • The SlugifierChain is made to chain multiple slugifiers to have a final slugified string. Not that the order matters.
  • The AsciiTransliteratorSlugifier transliterates the utf8 characters
