Important Notice

I'm no longer actively maintaining this project. If you are interested supporting it - ping me on twitter. The only thing that I will ask you is to not change the API drastically. If you are planning on doing that - better start a brand new project.

If you want me to transfer you only the name on npm, I'd be happy to only if the project does not have any downloads on npm lately. In case it's being downloaded, there are people that depend on it and might step up and start maintaining, so I will not transfer it to you, regardless if you want to release a new major version etc.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

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="" class="foobar">Foo</a>' # strips links

result = word.autoLink "" # 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.
