github-slugger

github-slugger

npm travis

Generate a slug just like GitHub does for markdown headings. It also ensures slugs are unique in the same way GitHub does it. The overall goal of this package is to emulate the way GitHub handles generating markdown heading anchors as close as possible.

Install

npm install github-slugger

Usage

var GithubSlugger = require('github-slugger')
var slugger = new GithubSlugger()
 
slugger.slug('foo')
// returns 'foo'
 
slugger.slug('foo')
// returns 'foo-1'
 
slugger.slug('bar')
// returns 'bar'
 
slugger.slug('foo')
// returns 'foo-2'
 
slugger.reset()
 
slugger.slug('foo')
// returns 'foo'
