BudouX JavaScript module

BudouX is a standalone, small, and language-neutral phrase segmenter tool that provides beautiful and legible line breaks.

For more details about the project, please refer to the project README.

Install

$ npm install budoux

Usage

Simple usage

You can get a list of phrases by feeding a sentence to the parser. The easiest way is to get a parser is loading the default parser for each language.

Japanese:

import { loadDefaultJapaneseParser } from 'budoux';
const parser = loadDefaultJapaneseParser();
console.log(parser.parse('今日は天気です。'));
// ['今日は', '天気です。']

Simplified Chinese:

import { loadDefaultSimplifiedChineseParser } from 'budoux';
const parser = loadDefaultSimplifiedChineseParser();
console.log(parser.parse('是今天的天气。'));
// ['是', '今天', '的', '天气。']

Traditional Chinese:

import { loadDefaultTraditionalChineseParser } from 'budoux';
const parser = loadDefaultTraditionalChineseParser();
console.log(parser.parse('是今天的天氣。'));
// ['是', '今天', '的', '天氣。']

Thai:

import { loadDefaultThaiParser } from 'budoux';
const parser = loadDefaultThaiParser();
console.log(parser.parse('วันนี้อากาศดี'));
// ['วัน', 'นี้', 'อากาศ', 'ดี']

Translating an HTML string

You can also translate an HTML string to wrap phrases with non-breaking markup, specifically, zero-width spaces (U+200B).

console.log(parser.translateHTMLString('今日は<b>とても天気</b>です。'));
// <span style="word-break: keep-all; overflow-wrap: anywhere;">今日は<b>\u200bとても\u200b天気</b>です。</span>

Please note that separators are denoted as \u200b in the example above for illustrative purposes, but the actual output is an invisible string as it's a zero-width space.

Applying to an HTML element

You can also feed an HTML element to the parser to apply the process.

const ele = document.querySelector('p.budou-this');
console.log(ele.outerHTML);
// <p class="budou-this">今日は<b>とても天気</b>です。</p>
parser.applyToElement(ele);
console.log(ele.outerHTML);
// <p class="budou-this" style="word-break: keep-all; overflow-wrap: anywhere;">今日は<b>\u200bとても\u200b天気</b>です。</p>

Internally, the applyToElement calls the HTMLProcessor's applyToElement function with the zero-width space as the separator.

You can use the HTMLProcessor class directly if desired. For example:

import { HTMLProcessor } from 'budoux';
const ele = document.querySelector('p.budou-this');
const htmlProcessor = new HTMLProcessor(parser, {
  separator: ' '
});
htmlProcessor.applyToElement(ele);

Loading a custom model

You can load your own custom model as follows.

import { Parser } from 'budoux';
const model = JSON.parse('{"UW4": {"a": 133}}');  // Content of the custom model JSON file.
const parser = new Parser(model);
parser.parse('xyzabc');  // ['xyz', 'abc']

Web components

BudouX also offers Web components to integrate the parser with your website quickly. All you have to do is wrap sentences with:

  • <budoux-ja> for Japanese
  • <budoux-zh-hans> for Simplified Chinese
  • <budoux-zh-hant> for Traditional Chinese
  • <budoux-th> for Thai
<budoux-ja>今日は天気です。</budoux-ja>
<budoux-zh-hans>今天是晴天。</budoux-zh-hans>
<budoux-zh-hant>今天是晴天。</budoux-zh-hant>
<budoux-th>วันนี้อากาศดี</budoux-th>

In order to enable the custom element, you can simply add this line to load the bundle.

<!-- For Japanese -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/budoux/bundle/budoux-ja.min.js"></script>

<!-- For Simplified Chinese -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/budoux/bundle/budoux-zh-hans.min.js"></script>

<!-- For Traditional Chinese -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/budoux/bundle/budoux-zh-hant.min.js"></script>

<!-- For Thai -->
<script src="https://unpkg.com/budoux/bundle/budoux-th.min.js"></script>

Otherwise, if you wish to bundle the component with the rest of your source code, you can import the component as shown below.

// For Japanese
import 'budoux/module/webcomponents/budoux-ja';

// For Simplified Chinese
import 'budoux/module/webcomponents/budoux-zh-hans';

// For Traditional Chinese
import 'budoux/module/webcomponents/budoux-zh-hant';

// For Thai
import 'budoux/module/webcomponents/budoux-th';

CLI

You can also format inputs on your terminal with budoux command.

$ budoux 本日は晴天です。
本日は
晴天です。
$ echo $'本日は晴天です。\n明日は曇りでしょう。' | budoux
本日は
晴天です。
---
明日は
曇りでしょう。
$ budoux 本日は晴天です。 -H
<span style="word-break: keep-all; overflow-wrap: anywhere;">本日は\u200b晴天です。</span>

Please note that separators are denoted as \u200b in the example above for illustrative purposes, but the actual output is an invisible string as it's a zero-width space.

If you want to see help, run budoux -h.

$ budoux -h
Usage: budoux [-h] [-H] [-d STR] [-m JSON] [-V] [TXT]

BudouX is the successor to Budou, the machine learning powered line break organizer tool.

Arguments:
  txt                   text

Options:
  -H, --html            HTML mode (default: false)
  -d, --delim <str>     output delimiter in TEXT mode (default: "---")
  -m, --model <json>    custom model file path
  -V, --version         output the version number
  -h, --help            display help for command

Caveat

BudouX supports HTML inputs and outputs HTML strings with markup applied to wrap phrases, but it's not meant to be used as an HTML sanitizer. BudouX doesn't sanitize any inputs. Malicious HTML inputs yield malicious HTML outputs. Please use it with an appropriate sanitizer library if you don't trust the input.
