    V1 Breaking Changes

    Option keys are now all Camel case, as opposed to previously.

    What is a Slug?

    A slug is a human-readable unique identifier that can be used in a URL instead of an ID or hash. This is common in content sites where the title of the article is "slugified" to turn this ugly URL

    into this pretty one

    How Slugs are Formatted

    When supplied with a string, the following steps are taken to transform it into a slug.

    • Accented characters are converted to regular equivalent characters.
    • Converted to lower case
    • All punctuation is removed
    • All spaces are replaced with dashes
    • Add a number to the end if the slug isn't unique (eg: my-cool-slug and my-cool-slug-2)

    Example Usage

    Example 1: Using default options and using 2 fields for slug generation.

    var mongoose = require('mongoose'),
        Schema = mongoose.Schema,
        URLSlugs = require('mongoose-url-slugs');
     
    var testSchema = new Schema({
      first_name: {type: String, default: '', trim: true},
      last_name: {type: String, default: '', trim: true},
      rev: {type: String, default: '', trim: true}
    });
     
    testSchema.plugin(URLSlugs('first_name last_name'));

    Example 2: Using 'myslug' key for storing slug.

    var mongoose = require('mongoose'),
        Schema = mongoose.Schema,
        URLSlugs = require('mongoose-url-slugs');
     
    var testSchema = new Schema({
      first_name: {type: String, default: '', trim: true},
      last_name: {type: String, default: '', trim: true},
      rev: {type: String, default: '', trim: true}
    });
     
    // Save slugs to 'myslug' field.
    testSchema.plugin(URLSlugs('first_name last_name', {field: 'myslug'}));
