    WatchYourLanguage

    A Simplistic approach to avoiding profanity within an environment.

    Usage

    To install:

    npm install @confused-techie/watchyourlanguage

    To use:

    const { WatchYourLanguage } = require("@confused-techie/watchyourlanguage");
    
    let config = {
      lang: "en",
    };
    
    let language = new WatchYourLanguage(config);

    Config

    The config object, allows you to define what language to use when checking for profane language.

    If no config is provided, it defaults to "en".

    Currently Supported Languages:

    • English : "en"

    Functions

    getList()

    let language = new WatchYourLanguage({ lang: "en" });
    
    let allBadWords = language.getList();

    Returns an array, of all profane words that are checked for.

    searchStrict()

    let language = new WatchYourLanguage();
    
    let isExactBadWord = language.searchStrict(userInput);

    Returns a boolean, true or false, indicating if the word provided matches Exactly with a profane word thats checked for. If it does true is returned, if not false is returned.

    searchWithin()

    let language = new WatchYourLanguage();
    
    let containsBadWord = langauge.searchWithin(userInput);

    Returns a boolean, true or false, indicating if the phrase provided contains a profane word within it. Returning true if it does and false if it does not.

    While searchWithin() does its best to avoid a false positive here, by nature false positives are possible during this check.

    To avoid a false positive if a profane word is found within the phrase passed, searchWithin() will check that the profane word within the phrase is immediately followed by _, -, *, , a capital letter (like we would see in camelCase), or the end of the phrase.

    Contributing

    Contributions are always welcome, and to use the dev version of WatchYourLanguage when initiating the class use:

    let language = WatchYourLanguage({
      dev: true,
    });

    This will allow the class to find its word list within the local directory rather than node_modules.

    Additionally to run the built in unit tests use:

    npm run test

    Lastly if you'd like to add additional words to the list feel free to do so, then run

    npm run build-strings

    This will organize the word list in alphabetical order, as well as remove any duplicates found.

    Attribution

    The general structure of this code shares similarities with coffee-and-fun/google-profanity-words although has been completely rewritten to support additional features needed for the intended use, as well as needed to support ES6 Modules instead of CommonJS Modules, while lastly expanding the used word list. With that said this rewrite is intended as an original work, and is licensed as such, but to respect the contributions of the author for the structure, that while their work has no license other than within package.json as ISC that will be listed here.
