The Abolish plugin provides handy options to coerce strings between a variety of casing, naming, or textual conventions, each with 3 simple keystrokes. For example, an underscored string like
employee_name can become
EmployeeName by simply typing
In the chart below, the three keystrokes indicated between the square brackets can coerce a string like
SomeLongIdentifier to the result provided:
[cr] some long identifier
[crt] Some Long Identifier
All the commands start with
cr and many of them can be remembered with simple mnemonics, like
crc for camelCase or
cr- for dasherize case.
Here’s a short demo showing conversion between various formats using several of the commands above:
Note that some coercions are one-way, in that subsequent coercions may have no way of recognizing what may have been a single word before being dasherized or having spaces inserted.
