dym) is a command-line spelling corrector written in rust utilizing a simplified version of Damerau-Levenshtein distance. DidYouMean is for those moments when you know what a word sounds like, but you're not quite sure how it's spelled.
DidYouMean is available on the AUR as three different packages:
x86_64at the moment.
You can install it using any AUR helper. Using
paru, the command would be as follows:
paru -S <package choice from above>
Homebrew is a package manager for macOS. Currently, I have only packaged an x86_64 binary. The command to install it is as follows:
brew tap hisbaan/tap brew install didyoumean
evanjs very kindly packaged
didyoumean for NixOS. The command to install is as follows:
nix-env install -iA nixpkgs.didyoumean
Run the following command to build
dym from source and install it in your home directory. Ensure that you have
$CARGO_HOME/bin/ in your path.
cargo install didyoumean
The build dependencies for this project are
cargo. First, clone this repository, then run
cargo run -- <args>
<args> are the command-line arguments you would pass the DidYouMean binary. Note that this is an unoptimized build contianing debug information so it runs much, much slower.
