>>> import jellyfish >>> jellyfish.levenshtein_distance(u'jellyfish', u'smellyfish') 2 >>> jellyfish.jaro_distance(u'jellyfish', u'smellyfish') 0.89629629629629637 >>> jellyfish.damerau_levenshtein_distance(u'jellyfish', u'jellyfihs') 1
>>> jellyfish.metaphone(u'Jellyfish') 'JLFX' >>> jellyfish.soundex(u'Jellyfish') 'J412' >>> jellyfish.nysiis(u'Jellyfish') 'JALYF' >>> jellyfish.match_rating_codex(u'Jellyfish') 'JLLFSH'
If you are interested in contributing to Jellyfish, you may want to run tests locally. Jellyfish uses tox to run tests, which you can setup and run as follows:
pip install tox # cd jellyfish/ tox
