    Case: An extensible utility to convert, identify, and flip string case.

    Download: Case.min.js or Case.js
    NPM: npm install case (little 'c' due to NPM restrictions)
    NuGet: Install-Package Case

    Build Status NPM version NPM


    Each of the following functions will first "undo" previous case manipulations before applying the desired case to the given string.


    Case.upper('foo_bar')     -> 'FOO BAR'
    Case.lower('fooBar')      -> 'foo bar''foo_v_bar') -> 'Foo V Bar'

    Code Helpers

    Case.snake('Foo bar!')   -> 'foo_bar'
    Case.pascal('')   -> 'FooBar'
    Case.camel('foo, bar')   -> 'fooBar'
    Case.kebab('Foo? Bar.')  -> 'foo-bar'
    Case.header('fooBar=')   -> 'Foo-Bar'
    Case.constant('Foo-Bar') -> 'FOO_BAR'

    UI Helpers

    Case.title('foo v. bar')                    -> 'Foo v. Bar'
    Case.sentence('"foo!" said bar', ['Bar'])   -> '"Foo!" said Bar'
    Case.sentence('the 12 oz. can', null, ['oz'])   -> 'The 12 oz. can'

    Case.sentence(str, names, abbreviations) accepts an array of proper names that should be capitalized, regardless of location in the sentence. This function is specialized, but useful when dealing with input generated with capslock on (i.e. everything my grandma types). It can also accept a list of abbreviations (words that may end in a period but aren't meant to end a sentence).

    Custom Casing

    Case.lower('FOO-BAR', '.')                  -> ''
    Case.upper('Foo? Bar.', '__')               -> 'FOO__BAR''fooBar', ' + ')               -> 'Foo + Bar'
    Case.lower("Don't keep 'em!", "/", true)    -> 'dont/keep/em'"'ello, world.", null, true)   -> 'Ello, World.'

    Case.upper, Case.lower, and accept an optional "fill" value that will replace any characters which are not letters and numbers. All three also accept a third optional boolean argument indicating if apostrophes are to be stripped out or left in. For example, programmatic case changes (snake, kebab, pascal, camel, constant) are best without apostrophes, but user-facing ones (title, sentence) do not want "don't" turned into "Dont".

    Extending Case

    Case.type('bang', function(s) {
        return Case.upper(s, '!')+'!';
    Case.bang('bang')       -> 'BANG!'
    Case.of('TEST!THIS!')   -> 'bang'

    Case.type(name, fn): extends Case, creating a new function on Case and adding Case.of support automatically.


    Case.of('foo')          -> 'lower'
    Case.of('foo_bar')      -> 'snake'
    Case.of('Foo v Bar')    -> 'title'
    Case.of('foo_ Bar')     -> undefined
    Case.of('Hello there, Bob!', ['Bob']) -> 'sentence'
    Case.flip('FlipMe')     -> 'fLIPmE'
    Case.flip('TEST THIS!') -> 'test this!'
    Case.random('Hello!')   -> 'hElLO!'
    • Case.of(str[, names]): identifies the case of a string, returns undefined if it doesn't match a known type
    • Case.flip(str): reverses the case of letters, no other changes
    • Case.random(str): randomizes the case of letters, no other changes
