A text filter for automatic email obfuscation using the well-established Javascript and a CSS fallback:

  • For Javascript-enabled browsers: ROT13 ciphering
  • For non-Javascript browsers: CSS reversed text direction


Installation & usage

Common installation step

Add the library to composer.json:

"require": {
    "propaganistas/email-obfuscator": "~1.0",

And finally include the supplied Javascript file (assets/EmailObfuscator.min.js) somewhere in your template. Publish the file yourself or use the following CDN link (no uptime guaranteed):

Additional Platform specific steps


Include the src/Obfuscator.php file somewhere in your project:

require_once 'PATH_TO_LIBRARY/src/Obfuscator.php';

Parse and obfuscate a string by using the obfuscateEmail($string) function.

Laravel 5

You have 3 options depending on your use case:

  • (recommended) If you want to obfuscate all email addresses that Laravel ever outputs, add the Middleware class to the $middleware array in App\Http\Middleware\Kernel.php:

    protected $middleware = [
  • If you only want to have specific controller methods return obfuscated email addresses, add the Middleware class to the $routeMiddleware array in App\Http\Middleware\Kernel.php:

    protected $routeMiddleware = [
    	'guest' => \App\Http\Middleware\RedirectIfAuthenticated::class,
    	'obfuscate' => \Propaganistas\EmailObfuscator\Laravel\Middleware::class,

    and apply controller middleware as usual in a controller's construct method or route definition:

    public function __construct()
  • If you want to apply obfuscation only on specific strings, just use the obfuscateEmail($string) function.


Add the extension to the Twig_Environment:

$twig = new Twig_Environment(...);
$twig->addExtension(new \Propaganistas\EmailObfuscator\Twig\Extension());

The extension exposes an obfuscateEmail Twig filter, which can be applied to any string.

{{ "Lorem Ipsum"|obfuscateEmail }}
{{ variable|obfuscateEmail }}

Well, feel free to hop in and create an integration yourself! If you have made an integration bundle/extension/package for a specific framework or CMS, please:

  • Fork the project
  • Place the necessary files in a correspondingly named folder in src/
  • Supply a README entry
  • Open up a pull request

If your platform enforces a strict package structure, create a repository and submit a pull request supplying only a README entry pointing to your repository.
