Port of ActiveSupport::Inflector::Inflections for underscore.js
Port of ActiveSupport::Inflector::Inflections for Underscore.js.
Works with browser or Node.js.
I created this underscore mixin after trying out every other inflection library out there. I've created this as a direct port of Rails' version as much as possible.
Note that right now, this only handles methods found in ActiveSupport::Inflector::Inflections since that's all I need right now. I may eventually split this out into separate inflector mixins that match all of ActiveSupport's.
Include both underscore.js and underscore.inflections on your page:
First, install the mixin through npm:
npm install underscore.inflections
Require underscore.js and underscore.inflections:
var _ = require'underscore';_mixingrequire'underscore.inflections';
Note: When using underscore in Node's REPL, be sure to choose a variable other than
_, as that is a special symbol used for showing the last return value.
