The ultimate JavaScript string library

Voca JavaScript library logo

travis build code coverage npm package

Voca is a JavaScript library for manipulating strings. https://vocajs.com

v.camelCase('bird flight');              // => 'birdFlight' 
v.sprintf('%s costs $%.2f', 'Tea', 1.5); // => 'Tea costs $1.50' 
v.slugify('What a wonderful world');     // => 'what-a-wonderful-world' 

The Voca library offers helpful functions to make string manipulations comfortable: change case, trim, pad, slugify, latinise, sprintf'y, truncate, escape and much more. The modular design allows to load the entire library, or individual functions to minimize the application builds. The library is fully tested, well documented and long-term supported.
