I have often missed the
method from Doctrine1 in Symfony2 with Doctrine2.
Of course there’s the doctrine extensions with the sluggable behaviour, but sometimes it seems a bit overhead for smaller tasks.
I just recently discovered Behat Transliterator, which brings just the dearly missed urlize function back.
composer require behat/transliterator
As it’s an abstract class, you’ll have to create your own Helper class extending it.
And there you go:
MyTextHelper::urlize("how great is that?")
