const badwords = new BadWordsNext({ data: en })

// Returns true when passed string contains a bad word
console.log(badwords.check('S0me sh!tt is here'))
// will print `true`

// Returns filtered string with masked bad words
console.log(badwords.filter('S0me sh!tt is here'))

// Returns filtered string and catches bad words
badwords.filter('S0me sh!tt is here', badword => {
  console.log(badword)
})
// will print `sh!tt`

const badwords = new BadWordsNext({ data: en, exclusions: ['sh+it+' /*works with lookalikes or the actual words*/] })

Dictionary files format

interface Data {
  id: string  // Unique dictionary ID
  words: string[] // Words list
  lookalike: Lookalike // Lookalike homoglyphs map
}

type Lookalike = Record<string | number, string> // Simple key-value object

You can use the following pattern characters in a word string:

  • * indicates any characters, use it only on start and/or end of a word
  • + indicates one or more repeating characters
  • _ indicates special characters

Options

interface Options {
  data?: Data // Dictionary data
  placeholder?: string // Filter placeholder - default '***'
  placeholderMode?: 'repeat' | 'replace' // Placeholder mode to either replace with or repeat the placeholder - default 'replace'
  specialChars?: RegExp // Special chars to allow on start and/or end of a word - default /\d|[!@#$%^&*()[\];:'",.?\-_=+~`|]|a|(?:the)|(?:el)|(?:la)/
  spaceChars?: string[] // Pseudo space chars, a list of values for `_` symbol in a dictionary word string - default ['', '.', '-', ';', '|']
  confusables?: string[] // List of ids to apply transformations from `confusables` npm package - default ['en', 'es', 'de', 'ru_lat']
  maxCacheSize?: number // Max items to store in cache - default 100
  exclusions?: string[] // The list of exclusions
}

See Options API for more details.

Notes

  • Dictionary words with spaces won't work b/c they do not represent a single word

  • Dictionaries have to be improved over time
