Consistency – Typographical Corrector for Gutenberg

Description

The purpose of this plugin is to provide a tool allowing administrators to define typographical rules in order to maintain typographical consistency in the text contents entered on the editor.
The corrections are automatic and are made during the entry as well as on a copy paste.
Autocorrect rules can be enabled/disabled by any user.
Autocorrect is available on pages, posts and custom post types (if their configuration allows Rest API usage)

Currently, the AutoCorrects offered are as follows:

For the English language

  • Straight quote”: Replaces straight quotes with curved quotes
  • Ellipsis”: Replaces 3 dots with ellipsis
  • Two hyphens”: Replaces 2 hyphens with em dash
  • Ordinal number suffix”: Add HTML tag sup to ordinal number suffix
  • Regular quotes to curly”: Replaces regular quotes with curly quotes
  • No breaking space after”: Adds a breaking space after a character from this list (, … ) ]) when followed with another character
  • Space before”: Remove any space preceding a character from this list (? ! : ; %)
  • First sentence letter not capitalized”: Capitalize the first letter of a sentence

For the French language

  • Straight quote”: Replaces straight quotes with curved quotes
  • Ellipsis”: Replaces 3 dots with ellipsis
  • Two hyphens”: Replaces 2 hyphens with em dash
  • Ordinal number suffix”: Add HTML tag sup to ordinal number suffix
  • Regular quotes to French”: Replaces regular quotes with French quotes
  • Breaking space”: Replaces a breaking space followed by a character from this list (? ! : ; » € $ £ ¥ ₽ 元 %) with a non-breaking space
  • No space before”: Adds a non-breaking space before a character from this list (? ! : ; » € $ £ ¥ ₽ 元 %) having no space before
  • No breaking space after”: Adds a breaking space after a character from this list (, … ) ]) when followed with another character
  • No non-breaking space after”: Adds a non-breaking space after open french quote having no space after
  • First sentence letter not capitalized”: Capitalize the first letter of a sentence

Ctrl+Z or Cmd+Z right after a correction disables the correction for the next keystroke

Technically, rules are saved in the wp_options table, while active/inactive states are saved as user meta data.
This data is deleted when the plugin is uninstalled.

Settings are directly in a plugin sidebar under the Block Editor: no more searching for an options page, always available and discreet.

Screenshots

Installation

  1. Install the plugin and activate.
  2. Configure the rules in the editor.

This extension is a must-have if you're concerned about the consistency of your typography. In French, having non-breaking spaces automatically before characters that require them is a real time-saver! No more exclamation marks ending a line below the title

Excellent ! As useful in english than in FrenchEt en plus si vous vous retrouvez dans une situation qui le nécessite, la modification est débrayable. Depuis le temps que je me prenais la tête avec les insécables et les guillemets ouverts et fermés.Petit reproche sur les ordinaux, seul le premier caractère passe en sup. (ou je m' 'y prend comme un manche ce qui est loin d'être impossible)Exemple : 1+e = 1e, mais 1+e+r = 1er Excellent quoiqu'il en soitUn grand merci Monsieur Antignac !
