nlcst utility to normalize a word for easier comparison.

Contents

What is this?

This utility serializes a node and cleans it.

When should I use this?

This package is a tiny utility that helps when comparing natural language to word lists.

Install

This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 12.20+, 14.14+, 16.0+, 18.0+), install with npm:

npm install nlcst-normalize

In Deno with esm.sh:

</script>

Use

normalize("Don't") // => 'dont'
normalize('Don’t') // => 'dont'
normalize('Don’t', {allowApostrophes: true}) // => 'don\'t'
normalize('Block-level') // => 'blocklevel'
normalize('Block-level', {allowDashes: true}) // => 'block-level'

normalize({
  type: 'WordNode',
  children: [
    {type: 'TextNode', value: 'Block'},
    {type: 'PunctuationNode', value: '-'},
    {type: 'TextNode', value: 'level'}
  ]
}) // => 'blocklevel'

API

This package exports the identifier normalize. There is no default export.

options

Configuration (optional).

options.allowApostrophes

Do not strip apostrophes (') (boolean, default: false).

options.allowDashes

Do not strip hyphens (-) (boolean, default: false).

Types

This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It exports the additional types Options.
