    Confusables

    This library allows you to replace confusables in a string with their lookalike English character.

    Try it out: https://confusables.gc.codes/

    Purpose

    When you need to filter/check English text and want any characters that look very similar to English characters, to be converted into those English characters. It does not support other languages - it's not possible to support other languages whilst remaining very practical/effective at normalizing for English.

    The main purpose is for filtering profanity: users can easily bypass most filters by changing "fuck" to "fück", this stops that.

    Installation

    yarn add confusables
    
    npm install confusables
    

    Usage

    Removing confusables

    import remove from 'confusables'; 
    
    remove('Ἢἕļľᦞ ш٥ṟlᑰ! Hello World!'); // => Hello World! Hello World!
    remove('Iлtèrnåtïonɑlíƶatïǫԉ'); // => Internationalization

    Injecting random confusables

    import { obfuscate } from 'confusables'; // with ES modules
    
    obfuscate('Hello World!'); // => Ḣé𝑙ŀ𝟶 Ꮤᴑ𝖗łᏧ
    obfuscate('Internationalization'); // => ᶦṅᵗᧉ𝘳𝓃ȧťί𝙾ቢค𝞲ἱƶ𝜶ナἰøʼn
