A jQuery plugin to clean input fields with common functionality, like trim, normalize whitespace, digits only. It is also easily extensible.

⚠️ This project has been archived

No future updates are planned. Feel free to continue using it, but expect no support.


<input id="auto-clean-me" type="text" />
// $input is a jQuery object with an input field.
var $input = $("#auto-clean-me");

// Pick one or more of these auto clean functions.
JoelPurra.autoCleanNormalizeWhitespace($input); // Don't allow repeated whitespace characters


Have a look at the source code. Write your versions to call these base functions, and you’ll be on your way.

// $input is a jQuery object with an input field.
// Callback is called with the input field as an argument, and is expected to return the new, cleaned value, for the input.
JoelPurra.autoCleanCallback($input, callback);

// $input is a jQuery object with an input field.
// disallowed represents disallowed characters; it can be a string or a regexp.
// replaceWith is a string, possibly with regexp $1...$n replacement values.
JoelPurra.autoCleanReplace($input, disallowed, replaceWith);
