Morph

Morph is a lightweight collection of string transformations useful for converting between variable naming styles. In addition to strings, Morph can also take a hash as input and will output a new object with converted keys.

Installation

Install via npm:

$ npm install morph

Usage

var morph = require('morph')

morph.toSnake('loremIpsumDolor')         // => 'lorem_ipsum_dolor'
morph.toSnakeCaps('loremIpsumDolor')     // => 'LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR'
morph.toCamel('lorem_ipsum_dolor')       // => 'loremIpsumDolor'
morph.toUpperCamel('lorem_ipsum_dolor')  // => 'LoremIpsumDolor'
morph.toDashed('lorem_ipsum_dolor')      // => 'lorem-ipsum-dolor'
morph.toHuman('lorem_ipsum_dolor')       // => 'Lorem ipsum dolor'
morph.toTitle('lorem_ipsum_dolor')       // => 'Lorem Ipsum Dolor'

// Convert an object's keys
var obj = {loremIpsum: 'test', dolorSit: 'test'}
morph.toSnake(obj)                       // => {lorem_ipsum: 'test', dolor_sit: 'test'}

Snake case

toSnake(input, [capFirst])

Converts the input string or hash to snake case. Set capFirst to true to capitalize the first letter of the output string.

morph.toSnake('loremIpsumDolor')        // => 'lorem_ipsum_dolor'
morph.toSnake('LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR')      // => 'lorem_ipsum_dolor'
morph.toSnake('lorem-Ipsum.Dolor')      // => 'lorem_ipsum_dolor'

Caps snake case

toSnakeCaps(input)

Converts the input string or hash to caps snake case.

morph.toSnakeCaps('loremIpsumDolor')        // => 'LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR'
morph.toSnakeCaps('lorem_ipsum_dolor')      // => 'LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR'
morph.toSnakeCaps('lorem-Ipsum.Dolor')      // => 'LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR'

Camel case

toCamel(input, [capFirst])

toUpperCamel(input, [capFirst])

Converts the input string or hash to caps snake case. Set capFirst to true to capitalize the first letter of the string, or use the aliased toUpperCamel function.

morph.toCamel('lorem_ipsum_dolor')          // => 'loremIpsumDolor'
morph.toCamel('lorem-Ipsum.dolor')          // => 'loremIpsumDolor'
morph.toUpperCamel('LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR')     // => 'LoremIpsumDolor'

Dashed

toDashed(input, [capFirst])

Converts the input string or hash to human readable format. Set capFirst to true to capitalize the first letter of the output string.

morph.toDashed('loremIpsumDolor')        // => 'lorem-ipsum-dolor'
morph.toDashed('LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR')      // => 'lorem-ipsum-dolor'
morph.toDashed('lorem-Ipsum.Dolor')      // => 'lorem-ipsum-dolor'

Human format

toHuman(input, [capFirst])

Converts the input string or hash to human readable format. Set capFirst to false to leave the first letter of the string lowercase.

morph.toHuman('lorem_ipsum_dolor')         // => 'Lorem ipsum dolor'
morph.toHuman('loremIpsumDolor')           // => 'Lorem ipsum dolor'
morph.toHuman('LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR', false)  // => 'lorem ipsum dolor'

Title format

toTitle(input)

Converts the input string or hash to title format.

morph.toTitle('lorem_ipsum_dolor')         // => 'Lorem Ipsum Dolor'
morph.toTitle('loremIpsumDolor')           // => 'Lorem Ipsum Dolor'
morph.toTitle('LOREM_IPSUM_DOLOR')         // => 'Lorem Ipsum Dolor'

Converting objects

To convert an object's keys to a new style, pass in an object as input. Note that all keys will be converted.

var obj = {some_key: 123, another_key: 456}
morph.toCamel(obj)                         // => {someKey: 123, anotherKey: 456}
