Package sanitize provides functions for sanitizing text in golang strings.


sanitize GoDoc Go Report Card CircleCI

Package sanitize provides functions to sanitize html and paths with go (golang).


sanitize.Accents(s string) string

Accents replaces a set of accented characters with ascii equivalents.

sanitize.BaseName(s string) string

BaseName makes a string safe to use in a file name, producing a sanitized basename replacing . or / with -. Unlike Name no attempt is made to normalise text as a path.

sanitize.HTML(s string) string

HTML strips html tags with a very simple parser, replace common entities, and escape < and > in the result. The result is intended to be used as plain text.

sanitize.HTMLAllowing(s string, args...[]string) (string, error)

HTMLAllowing parses html and allow certain tags and attributes from the lists optionally specified by args - args[0] is a list of allowed tags, args[1] is a list of allowed attributes. If either is missing default sets are used.

sanitize.Name(s string) string

Name makes a string safe to use in a file name by first finding the path basename, then replacing non-ascii characters.

sanitize.Path(s string) string

Path makes a string safe to use as an url path.

  • Differentiate Accents() and Umlauts() functions

    Differentiate Accents() and Umlauts() functions

    As stated in PR, sanitize package function was missing of Accents()-like function to transform strings to their umlauts variant. That PR has been merged, but was misinterpreting the way - I personally think - Accents() function was thought. This commit should make some clarifications about their real distinction.

    making code and comments confirm to GoLang's RFC spec

    just tweaking documentation to match GoLang's RFC specs for commenting:

    FYI, I also use Dave Cheney's godoc2md package for documenting my projects:

    You can see an example of how it outputs on another project I work on: ^- i did not create this, the godoc2md did from my code's documentation.

    It's nice as you can change your "Usage:" comments to actually give example code, and it shows up as examples.

  • Sanitize doesn't adequately protect HTML

    Sanitize doesn't adequately protect HTML

    This has the makings of a great sanitization library but right now it appears to have some vulnerabilities, based on a quick read-through of the clear and well-written code.

    To quote the first cheatsheet: Even if you use an HTML entity encoding method everywhere, you are still most likely vulnerable to XSS. You MUST use the escape syntax for the part of the HTML document you're putting untrusted data into.

    It might be useful to develop a test suite based on this:

    For example, escaping only <> isn't enough. OWASP used to have a list (as follows), but now even this isn't sufficient.

    &  -> &amp;
    < -> &lt;
    > -> &gt;
    " -> &quot;
    ' -> &#x27;
    / -> &#x2F;
    \n ->  <br>

    Also have a look at how does it.

    This is another OWASP cheat sheet that might be valuable:
