Scrubba: Clean your strings!

Build Status Code Climate

Scrubba is a tiny gem to strip and normalize whitespace. It provides a few convenient methods for working with ActiveRecord/ActiveModel/ActiveAttr/ActiveNode attributes too.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'scrubba'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install scrubba

Usage

Standalone:

require "scrubba"

some_str = " foo \t bar "
Scrubba.scrub(some_str) #=> "foo \t bar"
Scrubba.normalize(some_str) #=> " foo bar "

In an ActiveRecord model:

require "scrubba"

class Post < ActiveRecord::Base
  include Scrubba::ActiveMethods

  strip :title, :body
  normalize :title
end
