Slugify a string in JavaScript

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

Install the slugify library

npm i slugify

Then import it

import slugify from 'slugify'

and you can do

const slug = slugify('Testing this')
console.log(slug) //testing-this

Note that if the string contains dots or other punctuation, it will not strip that.

To remove that, you can use a regex like this:

slugify('Testing. this!', { remove: /[*+~.,()'"!:@]/g })
Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
