$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 = []);
