Format character strings to use kebab-style formatting, where word boundaries are defined by dashes/hyphens (e.g. this-is-kebab-case).

# S4 method for character
kebab(object)

Arguments

object

Object.

Value

Modified object.

Details

Kebab case is recommended for URL slugs and file names. However, they should not be used for names in R, since dashes are not valid, and should be substituted with underscores or periods instead.

Note

We're not including the additional S4 methods that work on names() and/or dimnames() because dashes are not syntactically valid for names in R.
