Synopsis

Word is written in CoffeeScript, but you can use it in your non-coffee app.

 
word = require 'word'
 
result = null
 
result = word.stripSlashes "O\\'reilly" # strips slashes. 
 
result = word.stripQuotes "foo ' bar" # strips quotes 
 
result = word.quotesEntities "foo ' bar" # quotes to entities 
 
result = word.random 5 # returns random string with length of 5 
 
result = word.repeat 'foo'3 # repeats n times a string 
 
result = word.censor 'foo''foo''***' # censors bad words. 
 
result = word.censor 'foo bar baz'['foo''bar']'***'
 
result = word.stripLinks 'baz <a href="http://example.com" class="foobar">Foo</a>' # strips links 
 
result = word.autoLink "http://example.com/" # links -> a + href 
 
result = word.excerpt 'foobar'3 # extracts an excerpt from string 
 
result = word.limit 'foo bar baz bar foo.'3 # limits text to n words. 
 
result = word.wrap 'foooo bar baz'3 # wraps text to given length. 
 
result = word.pluralize 2'dog' # pluralize or not, depends on supplied count. 
 

Want to use it as helper in your express app? Sure.

 
var express = require('express');
var word = require('word');
var app = express.createServer();
 
app.helpers({ word: word });
