Slug generator for clojure
Java Clojure
Branch: master


Slugger is a library primarily to create 7-bit url slugs from strings.

The goal is for Slugger to replicate the functionality of the Ruby stringex gem.


Add the following to your project.clj

[slugger "1.0.1"]

Then you can use it:

(use 'slugger.core)

(->slug "learn how to say 你好") 
=> "learn-how-to-say-ni-hao"

(->slug "learn how to say 你好")
=> "learn-how-to-say-ni-hao"

(->slug " this string   should be simple enough")
=> "this-string-should-be-simple-enough"

(->slug "Vi vil have mere Øl")
=> "vi-vil-have-mere-oel"

(->slug "Vi vil have mere øl")
=> "vi-vil-have-mere-oel"

(->slug "An idea worth $100")
=> "an-idea-worth-100-dollars"

(->slug "my email address is")
=> "my-email-address-is-pelle-at-picomoney-dot-com"


This library includes Giuseppe Cardone's excellent Junidecode.

It is not available in a maven library so I include it within the jar.

Note I have made a few minor changes to it for transliterating Scandinavian letters using local rules.

You can also use it directly:

(use '[slugger.core :only [unidecode]])
(unidecode "私はガラスを食べられます。それは私を傷つけません。")
=>"Si hagarasuwoShi beraremasu. sorehaSi woShang tukemasen. "
