angular-slugify

Provides “slugification” for AngularJS in the form of a service, filter, and a directive.

What is a slug?

A slug is that final portion of a URL which is derived from some other piece of information, usually the title of a page.

For example, “Man Bites Dog” might produce the slug man-bites-dog for the URL:

http://example.com/2013/04/man-bites-dog.html

Usage

Include angular-slugify.js in your HTML document somewhere after you have set up AngularJS.

<script src="angular-slugify.js">

Make slugifier a dependency in your AngularJS app.

angular.module("myApp", ["slugifier"]);

Service

The Slug service provides a single function slugify that takes a string input as argument and returns the slugified string.

function MyCtrl($scope, Slug) {
    $scope.slugify = function(input) {
        $scope.mySlug = Slug.slugify(input);
    };
}

Filter

The slugify filter slugifies any text passed to it in an AngularJS curly-brace expression.

<input type="text" ng-model="title">
<p>Slug: {{title | slugify}}</p>

Directive

The slug directive is a way to declaratively say one model is the slugification of another.

<slug from="post.title" to="post.slug">My slug is {{post.slug}}</slug>
<p>It also works out here: {{post.slug}}</p>

The from attribute is the name of the model in the current scope you want to slugify. The to attribute is the name of the model you want to be automatically updated with the slugification whenever from changes.
