Title Text Formatter

A simple to use text formatter, primarily used for page/blog titles.


Via Composer

"require": {
    "spartz/text-formatter": "~1.0"


use Spartz\TextFormatter\TextFormatter;

$title = "this is a messy title. [can you fix it?]";
$title = TextFormatter::titleCase($title);
echo $title; // This is a Messy Title. [Can You Fix It?]

Formatting "Rules"

  1. First word in a sentence is capitalized
  2. Last word in a sentence is capitalized
  3. Words within brackets (or similar) are capitalized, similar to rules #1 & #2
  4. Words within the $ignoredWords array should not be capitalized as long as it doesn't conflict with rules #1-#3
  5. Words preceded by multiple special characters should be capitalized: $$$Money
  6. All dashed words should be capitalized: Super-Awesome-Post
  7. Ignore words that already include at least one uppercase letter. We'll assume that the author knows what they're doing: eBay, iPad, McCormick, etc
