    • yaspeller -e ".md,.html,.txt" ./texts/ — finding typos in files in the folder.
    • yaspeller — search typos in the page.

    -f, --format <value>

    Formats: plain, html, markdown or auto.
    Default: auto.

    -l, --lang <value>

    Languages: en, ru or uk.
    Default: en,ru.

    -c, --config <path>

    Configuration file path.

    -e, --file-extensions <value>

    Set file extensions to search for files in a folder.
    Example: .md,.htm,.txt.

    --dictionary <file>

    JSON file for own dictionary.

        "someword1", // someword1 = someword1 and Someword1
        "Someword2", // Someword2 = Someword2

    Regular expressions are supported:

        "unknown(W|w)ord[12]?", // unknown(W|w)ord[12]? = unknown(W|w)ord[12]? and Unknown(W|w)ord[12]?
        "Unknown(W|w)ord[34]?" // Unknown(W|w)ord[34]? = Unknown(W|w)ord[34]?

    yaspeller --dictionary my_dict.json .
    yaspeller --dictionary my_dict.json:my_dict2.json .

    If you have tons of markdown and introduce this linter, you're likely to want generation of initial dictionary with yaspeller-dictionary-builder, so one line will cover all word's forms.

    Flag words, written in Latin, as erroneous.

    Default: 2.


    Clean output without colors.

    Specify filename to process <STDIN> as. Used in reports.
