Some existing workarounds can be found at Formula to replace special characters - slug creation

But they’re highly unfriendly, and don’t actually cover a proper “slug” use-case.

Is it possible to have official functions for this?
For instance:

  • KEBABCASE - Replaces all special chars by -.

See for implementation details

  • SLUG - Similar to KEBABCASE but also converts non-ascii characters (accents become non-accent)

This is really, really needed for urls generated by content. Like article’s title and such.

List of all existing functions:

An alternative would be the ability to create our own functions, which would grant much more flexibility and reduce work on Airtable’s developers.
