Typographer for ProcessWire

Typographer is a ProcessWire wrapper for the awesome PHP Typography class, originally authored by KINGdesk LLC and enhanced by Peter Putzer for wp-Typography. Like Smartypants, it supercharges text fields with enhanced typography and typesetting, such as smart quotations, hyphenation in 59 languages, ellipses, copyright-, trade-, and service-marks, math symbols, and more.


The module may be installed via the modules directory by searching for TextformatterTypographer.


To use Typographer, simply apply the textformatter on a field as you usually would.

If you are interacting with content that does not form part of the normal ProcessWire page system, such as fetching content from an external source, you can make use of the formatString method on the module class:

print $modules
  ->formatString('"Hello, world!"');


This module is configurable. Feel free to visit the configuration page to see what can be toggled and configured.

To modify the instance of Typographer's settings class programatically, hook into the customTypographerSettings method.

wire()->addHookAfter('TextformatterTypographer::customTypographerSettings', function (HookEvent $event) {
  /** @var \PHP_Typography\Settings $settings */
  $settings = $event->return;
  $lang = $event->user->language->name;

  // Set configurations based on language, for example:
  if ($lang === 'de') {

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
