RubyAnn

(see also the original jQuery version jquery.rubyann)

rubyann is a small library for writing ruby annotations using a simplified syntax. Basically, to avoid writing the tedious XML required. This is most often used for Japanese furigana.

For most users, this will simply mean - a convenient way of adding Furigana to their Kanji in a web page.

Example

It works by using the custom syntax below:

{日,に}{本,ほん}{語,ご}

ie {kanji,furigana} any text here

rubyann will parse this and can replace the HTML with ruby annotations that looks like this:

RubyAnn result

This is done by using rubyann in javascript like this:

  let ann = new RubyAnn()
  ann.elements('.furigana-text')

You can also pass in your own delimiters (instead of curly braces) - incase there's a conflict

eg new RubyAnn('[]') - the function/constructor takes 2 characters in a string for start/end.

Another use of the library is to just get the raw XML/XHTML, without affecting the DOM, to use however you need.

  let ann = new RubyAnn()
  ann.getXml('{鳥,とり}')   // returns '<ruby><rb>鳥</rb><rp>(</rp><rt>とり</rt><rp>)</rp></ruby>'

Source Code

RubyAnn is written in TypeScript and has a Mocha test suite and a Demo Page that can be run locally.
