Unicode Test Example
=====================
from uuslug import slugify

s = "This is a test ---"
r = slugify(s)
self.assertEquals(r, "this-is-a-test")

s = 'C\'est déjà l\'été.'
r = slugify(s)
self.assertEquals(r, "c-est-deja-lete")

s = 'Nín hǎo. Wǒ shì zhōng guó rén'
r = slugify(s)
self.assertEquals(r, "nin-hao-wo-shi-zhong-guo-ren")

s = '影師嗎'
r = slugify(s)
self.assertEquals(r, "ying-shi-ma")


Uniqueness Test Example
=======================
Override your object's save method with something like this (models.py)

from django.db import models
from uuslug import uuslug

class CoolSlug(models.Model):
name = models.CharField(max_length=100)
slug = models.CharField(max_length=200)

def __unicode__(self):
return self.name

def save(self, *args, **kwargs):
self.slug = uuslug(self.name, instance=self)
super(CoolSlug, self).save(*args, **kwargs)


Note: You can also specify the start number.
Example:
self.slug = uuslug(self.name, instance=self, start_no=2)
# the second slug should start with "-2" instead of "-1"


Test:
=====

name = "john"
c = CoolSlug.objects.create(name=name)
c.save()
self.assertEquals(c.slug, name) # slug = "john"

c1 = CoolSlug.objects.create(name=name)
c1.save()
self.assertEquals(c1.slug, name+"-1") # slug = "john-1"

c1 = CoolSlug.objects.create(name=name)
c1.save()
self.assertEquals(c1.slug, name+"-2") # slug = "john-2"

ToDo:
=====
clean up README
add more test and examples
