Richtypo: typography enhancer for Node.js Build Status

The main purpose of this library is to enhance typography of your HTML. It supposes that your texts already have right quotes, dashes and other symbols (you can use Typography Keyboard Layout). Richtypo adds non-breaking spaces in right places, adds CSS classes for abbreviations, ampersands and hanging punctuation for special styling.

Features

  • Rules for English and Russian languages
  • Non-breaking spaces after prepositions and conjunctions, before em-dash, etc.
  • <nobr> for words with hyphens
  • CSS classes for abbreviations, ampersands and hanging punctuation
  • Takes care of your HTML tags
  • Simple typographer (quotes, em-dash, etc.) for user generated content (e.g. comments)

Example

var richtypo = require('richtypo');
var beautiful = richtypo.rich('Welcome to the world of beautiful web typography — only with Richtypo.');
var awesome = richtypo.title('Beautiful &amp; Awesome Web Typography with “Richtypo”');

Will produce something like that:

Welcome to&nbsp;the world of&nbsp;beautiful web typography&nbsp;— only with Richtypo.
Beautiful <span class="amp">&amp;</span> Awesome Web Typography with <span class="slaquo"> </span> <span class="hlaquo">“</span>Richtypo”'
