Probably you are here to find a way to convert your text string in to a slug. Me too wanted the same and could create the following quick and neat function after reading couple of resources.
.toLowerCase() //Convert the whole string to lowercase
.replace(/[^\w ]+/g,”) //Remove all the non-word characters
.replace(/ +/g,’-‘) //Replace white spaces with hyphens
.replace(/^-/g,”) //Remove leading hyphens (caused by leading spaces)
.replace(/-$/g,”) //Remove trailing hyphens (caused by trailing spaces)
Then you can call the function with the text as your parameter.
var text = “Can you convert me to a slug?”
var slug = makeSlug(text);
And the result will be a hyphen separated, clean, seo friendly slug url.
Hope this helped
