mediawiki-title npm version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies

Mediawiki title normalization, that conforms to the normalization rules used in MediaWiki Core. In general, the page title is converted to the mediawiki DB key format by trimming spaces, replacing whitespace symbols to underscores and applying wiki-specific capitalization rules. The namespace name is converted to a localized canonical name.

Usage

The library synchronously returns a normalized title. Wiki-specific rules should be fetched from the MediaWiki API, and cached outside of the library. The description of the required properties is available in the SiteInfo object docs.

var result = Title.newFromText('some_title', {
     general: {
         lang: 'en',
         legaltitlechars: " %!\"$&'()*,\\-.\\/0-9:;=?@A-Z\\\\^_`a-z~\\x80-\\xFF+",
         case: 'first-letter'
     },
    namespaces: {
        "0": {
            id: 0,
            case: "first-letter",
            content: "",
            "*": ""
            },
        }
});
console.log(result.getPrefixedDBKey());
