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.

Or, you can use Composer:

composer require rockett/textformatter-typographer


To use Typographer, simply apply the text formatter 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') {

“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
