What is Profanity?

Profanity is a PHP library that allows blocking bad words out of a given string. It currently blocks more than 2.555 words in different languages. It's very easy to use and can filter a 100 chars string in about 0.0021 seconds!

Sample Filter

This example is a simple string that is going to be filtered using this library.

$clean_words = Profanity::blocker('My cool string bitch')->filter()

// My cool string *****

Documentation

Installation

First, require it using composer:

composer require consoletvs/profanity

Laravel

To install it on laravel, simply add the service provider and the alias in config/app.php:

Service Provider:

ConsoleTVs\Profanity\ProfanityServiceProvider::class,

Alias (optional):

'Profanity' => ConsoleTVs\Profanity\Facades\Profanity::class,

Usage

PHP

$words = 'My bad word bitch';
$clean_words = \ConsoleTVs\Profanity\Builder::blocker($words)->filter();
// My bad word *****

Laravel

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use ConsoleTVs\Profanity\Facades\Profanity;
// or using the alias:
// use Profanity;

class HomeController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Simple test function.
     *
     * @return string
     */
    public function test()
    {
        $words = 'My bad word bitch';

        return Profanity::blocker($words)->filter();
        // My bad word *****
    }
}

Methods

Constructor

  • blocker($text, $blocker = '****')

    Setup the text and the blocker to use.

    note: The blocker defaults to ****

Class Methods

  • strict(true/false)

    Set the strict mode to enabled or disabled. Strict mode replaces the string even if it's not a word: assets => (tagged as ass) => **** Disable to ensure normal usage. Defaults to false.

  • strictClean(true/false)

    Set the strict clean mode to enabled or disabled. Strict clean mode ensures the first blocked character is repeated for each bad word character. If so, a bad word of length = 3 (ass) will result in a ***, instead of the blocker (defaults to ****). If the blocker is -**- then the same example as above would produce --- as strict clean true and -**- as false. Defaults to true.

  • clean()

    Returns true if the text have no bad words on it.

  • filter()

    Filters the text with the given blocker.

  • badWords()

    Return the bad words found in the text.

  • text($text)

    Sets the text to filter.

  • blocker($blocker)

    Sets the string that will replace the bad words.

  • dictionary($dictionary)

    Sets the dictionary. If string is provided, it will be treated as a path and will try to decode the json contained in the path. If array is provided, it will set the dictionary.

    Example dictionary:

    [
        {
            "language": "en",
            "word": "bitch"
        },
        {
            "language": "en",
            "word": "fuck"
        }
    ]
