$ npm install cld

Linux users, make sure you have g++ >= 4.8. If this is not an option, you should be able to install node-cld 2.4.4 even with an older g++ build.

require('cld').detect('This is a language recognition example', function(err, result) {
  console.log(result);
});
var text    = 'Това е пример за разпознаване на Български език';
var options = {
  isHTML       : false,
  languageHint : 'BULGARIAN',
  encodingHint : 'ISO_8859_5',
  tldHint      : 'bg',
  httpHint     : 'bg'
};
 
require('cld').detect(text, options, function(err, result) {
  console.log(result);
});

Pass a LANGUAGES key or value as a hint

Pass an ENCODINGS value as a hint

Once the module has been installed, the underlying C source will remain in the deps/cld folder and continue to occupy considerable space. If you are under severe constraints you can delete this folder and reclam >100M
