jQuery.profanityFilter plug-in

demo

The jQuery.profanityFilter has the ability to filter out profane words on the client side.

This was built in order to allow users to "Opt-in" to profanity filtering, and offload all of the work to the client, saving the headache on the server. The jQuery.profanityFilter also attempts to use Local Storage on the client machine in order to reduce lookups at the externalSwears URL.

Obvious warning: The swearWord lists as well as code examples contain material that many will find offensive. (But that's the point!) note: localization support provided by shutterstock's List of Dirty, Naughty, Obscene, and Otherwise Bad Words

Usage:


Option 1:

// Filter the word "shit" every time it shows up inside the element "SomeElement"
$('#SomeElement').profanityFilter({
    customSwears: ['shit']
});

Option 2:

// Filter an external array of words on the entire document
$(document).profanityFilter({
    externalSwears: '/Path/To/Json/Swears/'
});

Option 3:

// Change the replacement character from an astrisk (*) to a pound sign (#)
$('#SomeElement').profanityFilter({
    externalSwears: '/Path/To/Json/Swears/',
    replaceWith: '#'
});

Option 4:

// Change the replacement from astrisks (*) to random words
$('#SomeElement').profanityFilter({
    externalSwears: '/Path/To/Json/Swears/',
    replaceWith: ['fiddle', 'fun', 'stupendous']
});

Option 5:

// Combine an externl Swear list with a custom list (don't worry, we'll remove duplicates)
$('#SomeElement').profanityFilter({
    customSwears: ['monkeyass'],
    externalSwears: '/Path/To/Json/Swears/'
});

Option 6:

// Don't filter anything. Useful in conjunction with the profaneText callback (which only
// fires when profanity exists).
// Ex. Check if the element contains profanity and throw an alert.
$('#SomeElement').profanityFilter({
    customSwears: ['shit'],
    filter: false,
    profaneText: function(data) {
        alert('That is vulgar!');
        console.log(data);
    }
});
