    Case anything 🐫

    npm i case-anything

    10 case changing functions: camelCase, kebab-case, PascalCase and more...
    A simple integration with nano package size. (SMALL footprint!)


    I created this package because most other packages that do simple case changing are so big...

    I wanted to try my hand at the smallest iteration possible. (and it's 12+ times smaller than the next popular case changing package!!)

    There's also a Better Touch Tool preset with keyboard shortcuts to convert selected text system wide!

    Meet the family


    case-anything supports tree-shaking and is side-effect free!

    import { camelCase, pascalCase, kebabCase, snakeCase, constantCase } from 'case-anything'
    const str = 'PonytaVaporeon_poliwrath-BUTTERFREE'
    // or any variant on this
    camelCase(str) === 'ponytaVaporeonPoliwrathButterfree'
    pascalCase(str) === 'PonytaVaporeonPoliwrathButterfree'
    kebabCase(str) === 'ponyta-vaporeon-poliwrath-butterfree'
    snakeCase(str) === 'ponyta_vaporeon_poliwrath_butterfree'

    There is also spaceCase and pathCase, which does not convert the casing:

    import { spaceCase, pathCase } from 'case-anything'
    const str = 'PonytaVaporeon_poliwrath-BUTTERFREE'
    spaceCase(str) === 'Ponyta Vaporeon poliwrath BUTTERFREE'
    pathCase(str) === 'Ponyta/Vaporeon/poliwrath/BUTTERFREE'

    There is also upper, lower and capital case. These will all convert the casing & also add spaces in between:

    import { upperCase, lowerCase, capitalCase } from 'case-anything'
    const str = 'PonytaVaporeon_poliwrath-BUTTERFREE'
    lowerCase(str) === 'ponyta vaporeon poliwrath butterfree'
    capitalCase(str) === 'Ponyta Vaporeon Poliwrath Butterfree'

    When spaces are involved

    As soon as there is a space in the target string, it will regard the input as a sentence and only split each part at the spaces.

    See this example to understand each case:

    const str = `listen I'm O.K.!`
    // splits on spaces & removes special characters
    camelCase(str) ===    'listenImOk'
    pascalCase(str) ===   'ListenImOk'
    kebabCase(str) ===    'listen-im-ok'
    snakeCase(str) ===    'listen_im_ok'
    constantCase(str) === 'LISTEN_IM_OK'
    // splits on spaces & keeps special characters
    spaceCase(str) ===    `listen I'm O.K.!`
    pathCase(str) ===     `listen/I'm/O.K.!`
    lowerCase(str) ===    `listen i'm o.k.!`
    upperCase(str) ===    `LISTEN I'M O.K.!`
    capitalCase(str) ===  `Listen I'm O.k.!`

    Also note, that multiple sequential spaces are treated as one space.

    When special characters are involved

    I have extended regular alphabet with the most common Latin-1 Supplement special characters.

    The coolest thing about this library is that it will "convert" special characters into regular alphabet for the cases used as variable names! 😎

    const str = 'Çâfé Ågård'
    // CONVERTS special characters:
    camelCase(str) ===    'cafeAgard'
    pascalCase(str) ===   'CafeAgard'
    kebabCase(str) ===    'cafe-agard'
    snakeCase(str) ===    'cafe_agard'
    constantCase(str) === 'CAFE_AGARD'
    // DOES NOT convert special characters:
    spaceCase(str) ===    'Çâfé Ågård'
    pathCase(str) ===     'Çâfé/Ågård'
    lowerCase(str) ===    'çâfé ågård'
    upperCase(str) ===    'ÇÂFÉ ÅGÅRD'
    capitalCase(str) ===  'Çâfé Ågård'

    Keyboard shortcuts

    With Better Touch Tool you can set up keyboard shortcuts to convert selected text with JavaScript. This repo provides an easy to install preset that has shortcuts for pascal, kebab and camel case! (thanks to @AndrewKoch) It even supports multi-cursors in VSCode!

    Here is an example triggering keyboard shortcuts to convert the selected text to PascalCase; kebab-case; camelCase:

    You can download the BTT preset from the source code: case-anything.bttpreset.

    Package size

    We'll compare this package with blakeembrey/change-case, a very famous package on npm.

    case-anything change-case
    camelCase 1.1K (572) 27.2K (6K)
    pascalCase 1.1K (561) 27.4K (6.1K)
    kebabCase 1.1K (541) 26.8K (5.9K)
    snakeCase 1.1K (540) 26.8K (5.9K)
    constantCase 1.1K (540) 27.2K (6K)
    pathCase 1K (530) 26.8K (5.9K)

    Source code

    What keeps my package small, is that it's literally just a regex:

    export function splitOnSpecialChars (string: string): any[] {
      return string.match(/^[a-z]+|[A-Z][a-z]+|[a-z]+|[0-9]+|[A-Z]+(?![a-z])/g)


    npm i case-anything
