(Greek) Slug Generator

GreekSlugGenerator is a PHP slug (pretty URL) generator, which supports Greek UTF-8 encoded characters, and generates a slug based on strings which are typically titles of pages or articles.

The class can be used for English-only titles as well.

If a Greek character is found, it is converted to its English equivalent.

Spaces as well as some punctuation marks are converted to dashes, but if at any point multiple sequential dashes are produced, only one appears in the final slug.

You can download it via GitHub.
