Convert a camelcase or space-separated string to a dash-separated string. ~12 sloc, fast, supports diacritics.

Please consider following this project's author, Jon Schlinkert, and consider starring the project to show your :heart: and support.


Install with npm:

$ npm install --save dashify

Why another dashify lib?

Most slugify libs cover way too many corner cases and are bloated and slow as a result. I made this as a fast and light alternative (it even supports diacritics in ~12 sloc).


var dashify = require('dashify');

//=> 'foo-bar'

//=> 'foo-bar-baz'

console.log(dashify('foo bar'));
//=> 'foo-bar'

console.log(dashify('foo barBaz'));
//=> 'foo-bar-baz'

console.log(dashify('foo barBaz quux'));
//=> 'foo-bar-baz-quux'

console.log(dashify('São Tomé and Príncipe'));
//=> 'são-tomé-and-príncipe'


Type: boolean

Default: undefined

Condense multiple consecutive dashes to one.

//=> 'foo----bar'

console.log(dashify('Foo----Bar', {condense: true}));
//=> 'foo-bar'
