Visie is a Simple Initialism Enumerator

It helps you name things with acronyms.

Installation

pip3 install visie

Examples

By default, visie will find initialisms and acronyms that contain any subset of the provided words, in any order:

$ visie pleasing orange home noise expeller
HONE: home orange noise expeller
HOPE: home orange pleasing expeller
NOPE: noise orange pleasing expeller
OPEN: orange pleasing expeller noise
PEHO: pleasing expeller home orange
PEON: pleasing expeller orange noise
PHEON: pleasing home expeller orange noise
PHON: pleasing home orange noise
PHONE: pleasing home orange noise expeller
PONE: pleasing orange noise expeller

Wrapping words in angle brackets <...> means that they must all occur, in order:

$ visie 'pleasing orange home <noise expeller>'
HONE: home orange noise expeller
PHONE: pleasing home orange noise expeller
PONE: pleasing orange noise expeller

Words in square brackets [...] must all occur, but can be in any order:

$ visie '[pleasing orange home <noise expeller>]'
PHONE: pleasing home orange noise expeller

Parenthesis (...) means exactly one of the contained elements will be used:

$ visie --min-length 3 'pleasing home (orange noise expeller)'
HEP: home expeller pleasing
HOP: home orange pleasing
PHO: pleasing home orange
POH: pleasing orange home

Elements in curly braces {...} can occur in any order and any quantity:

$ visie 'pleasing home ({orange noise} expeller)'
PHON: pleasing home orange noise

Elements followed by a question mark are optional:

$ visie '<diaphone is? a? [pleasing orange home noise expeller]>'
DIAPHONE: diaphone is a pleasing home orange noise expeller

Finally, you can create recursive acronyms by using a period as a wildcard:

$ visie '<. is? a? [pleasing orange home noise expeller]>'
DIAPHONE: d is a pleasing home orange noise expeller
WANHOPE: w a noise home orange pleasing expeller

The name visie was discovered this way:

$ visie '<<. is? a?>? (efficient simple magical) recursive? (acronym initialism) (name word)? (generator enumerator)>'
