Code Solution:

function spinalCase(str) {
  // Create a variable for the white space and underscores.
  var regex = /\s+|_+/g;

  // Replace low-upper case to low-space-uppercase
  str = str.replace(/([a-z])([A-Z])/g, '$1 $2');

  // Replace space and underscore with -
  return str.replace(regex, '-').toLowerCase();
}

Code Explanation:

  • Read comments in code.
