    GitHub Actions Status Azure Pipelines Status npm version Gitter

    General purpose transliterate service for JavaScript applications which can be used in swapping letters such as α → a, ၎ → ၎င်း.


    • Can transliterate/convert any script or Unicode letters by using from a simplest rule definition (just with from and to rules) to more powerful rule definition (with tplVar, tplSeq, when, postRules, etc.)
    • Can transliterate input phase by phase
    • Can define template variables with tplVar to reduce JSON size and to avoid repetition
    • Can define template loop sequences with tplSeq for sequential rules checking and replacement
    • Quick test input string checking with quickTests and minLength options for better performance
    • Can check converted left portion string with hasLeft boolean option and left regular expression option
    • Can check right part after matched input string with right regular expression option
    • Conditional rules processing with when and skip options
    • Can define post-rules with postRules for step-by-step conversions
    • Can use postRulesDef and postRulesRef to reduce JSON size and to avoid repetition in defining postRules
    • Conversion trace information can be included in output result for debugging purpose
