📦 Install

Yarn

yarn add japanese-moji

NPM

npm install --save japanese-moji

👨‍💻 Quick start

Kanji

Validates Rare Kanji, Common and Uncommon Kanji, and Kanji compatibility ideographs

Demo

import { isValidKanji, isKanjiPresent, howMuchKanjiIsPresent } from 'japanese-moji';

// Strict validation
const isValidKanjiResult = isValidKanji('some string here');

// Default threshold is 85 (2nd argument)
const isKanjiPresentResult = isKanjiPresent('some string here', 90);

// Returns % of Kanji present in a string
const howMuchKanjiIsPresentResult = howMuchKanjiIsPresent('some string here');

Kana

Validates Katakana, Half-width Katakana, and Katakana phonetic extensions

Demo

import { isValidKana, isKanaPresent, howMuchKanaIsPresent } from 'japanese-moji';

// Strict validation
const isValidKanaResult = isValidKana('some string here');

// Default threshold is 85 (2nd argument)
const isKanaPresentResult = isKanaPresent('some string here', 90);

// Returns % of Kana present in a string
const howMuchKanaIsPresentResult = howMuchKanaIsPresent('some string here');

Japanese

Validates CJK punctuations, Hiragana, Katakana, Katakana phonetic extensions, Rare Kanji, Common and Uncommon Kanji, Kanji compatibility ideographs, Half-width Katakana forms, and Full-width (roman) forms including punctuations

Demo

import { isValidJapanese, isJapanesePresent, howMuchJapaneseIsPresent } from 'japanese-moji';

// Strict validation
const isValidJapaneseResult = isValidJapanese('some string here');

// Default threshold is 85 (2nd argument)
const isJapanesePresentResult = isJapanesePresent('some string here', 90);

// Returns % of Japanese present in a string
const howMuchJapaneseIsPresentResult = howMuchJapaneseIsPresent('some string here');

🛠 Build Your Own Validators

You could create custom validators too, should the existing validators not fit your use case.

There are also ready-to-use, copy-pastable code snippets that may fit your use cases here

import {
  // Types
  UnicodeRange,
  CreateValidatorOptions,
  StrictValidator,
  ThresholdBasedValidator,
  MatchScoreCalculator,
  CharacterSet,

  // Functions
  createStrictValidator,
  createThresholdBasedValidator,
  createMatchScoreCalculator,
} from 'japanese-moji';

// Requires escaped unicode characters
const LatinUnicodeRange: UnicodeRange = {
  start: '\\u0020',
  end: '\\u007F',
};

const customRanges: UnicodeRange[] = [LatinUnicodeRange];

// Provide escaped unicode characters
const customUnicodes = ['\\u00A0'];

const options: CreateValidatorOptions = {
  // Required
  characterSets: [
    CharacterSet.CJKPunctuations,
    CharacterSet.Hiragana,
    CharacterSet.Katakana,
    CharacterSet.KatakanaPhoneticExtension,
    CharacterSet.RareKanji,
    CharacterSet.CommonUncommonKanji,
    CharacterSet.KanjiCompatibilityIdeographs,
    CharacterSet.HalfWidthKatakana,
    CharacterSet.FullWidthUpperCase,
    CharacterSet.FullWidthLowerCase,
    CharacterSet.FullWidthNumbers,
    CharacterSet.FullWidthPunctuations,
  ],
  customRanges, // Optional
  customUnicodes, // Optional
};

const isValidCustom: StrictValidator = createStrictValidator(options);
const isCustomPresent: ThresholdBasedValidator = createThresholdBasedValidator(options);
const howMuchIsCustomPresent: MatchScoreCalculator = createMatchScoreCalculator(options);

// Strict validation
const isValidCustomResult = isValidCustom('some string here');

// Default threshold is 85 (2nd argument)
const isCustomPresentResult = isCustomPresent('some string here', 90);

// Returns % of Japanese present in a string
const howMuchIsCustomPresentResult = howMuchIsCustomPresent('some string here');
