#5696 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Minor Feature: Slugify

Not a huge deal, but I find a function to turn text into a URL friendly slug like this often useful:

jQuery.slugify = function(s) {
	return s.replace(/\s+/g,'-').replace(/[^a-zA-Z0-9\-]/g,'').toLowerCase();

Might be worth sticking into jQuery core for everyone else. (Although I know that string operations are extremely sparse in the jQuery framework. Only trim() as far as I know.)

If this is worth a patch, I can spend the minute and turn it into one. Let me know.

This isn't something that we're going to be landing - should make for a fine plugin, though.
