$sanitizer->markupToText() method

Convert a string containing markup or entities to be plain text

This is one implementation but there is also a better one that you may prefer with the WireTextTools::markupToText() method:

Example

$markup = '<html>a bunch of HTML here</html>';
// try both to see what you prefer:
$text1 = $sanitizer->markupToText($html);
$text2 = $sanitizer->getTextTools()->markupToText(); 

Usage

// basic usage
$string = $sanitizer->markupToText(string $value);

// usage with all arguments
$string = $sanitizer->markupToText(string $value, array $options = []);

“To Drupal, or to ProcessWire? The million dollar choice. We decided to make an early switch to PW. And in retrospect, ProcessWire was probably the best decision we made. Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
