NANY 2016 - txtproc

NANY 2016 Entry Information

Application Name txtproc
Version 0.4.0
Short Description Yet another text processing tool
Supported OSes Windows, Linux, probably more
Web Page https://github.com/phitsc/txtproc
Download Link https://github.com/p...tsc/txtproc/releases
Build Status



Description
txtproc is a text processing tool, similar to my TIMU. It currently comes without a GUI though, i.e. it is just a command line tool at the moment. It is a completely new implementation.

Compared to TIMU, its most interesting features are:

  • It works on Linux as well as Windows (and probably OS X as well)
  • It can be used in a pipeline to do multiple text manipulations in a row
  • It has a better understanding of text. It knows words and sentences. E.g. "hello,world" are two words in txtproc, but only one in TIMU.
  • It has most of TIMU's text processing functions, some new one's which TIMU doesn't have, and even one or two which were requested for TIMU but I never added.

Planned Features
  • Add more text processing functions
  • Add color to console to highlight search results
  • Add a GUI

Usage
Installation
Just unzip and run.

Using the Application
See https://github.com/phitsc/txtproc for basic usage instructions.

Motivation
Uninteresting babbling, if anyone's interested.
Spoiler
I initially wrote this because I wanted to check out biicode and catch. It soon became clear that the projects main challenge would become Unicode support if I was going to use C++. Unfortunately, Boost.Locale is severely limited, and using the ICU library directly would be a project on its own. So I settled for D, which I have never used before, and learned a ton of stuff not only about the language, but about the D community as well.

v0.2.0 adds more text processing functions.

The Windows build doesn't handle newlines correctly when sending the output to a file or down a pipeline. Needs fixing.

So are you going to make a PKGBUILD for it so we can use it in Arch and Manjaro? :)

0.4.0 now available. List of changes and download here: https://github.com/p...tsc/txtproc/releases

Except for SortSentences, all of the text processing functions now have at least one test which is run on every build. I'm not happy with how SortSentences works, so therefore no test yet.
