What's Distance?

Distance is a Coffeescript and Javascript module for calculating distances between strings.

var distance = require "distance";

console.log(distance.levenshtein("banana", "fanana"));

Installation

The recommended way is through the excellent npm:

Otherwise, you can check it in your repository and then expose it:

$ git clone git://github.com/awnist/distance.git node_modules/distance/

Distance is UNLICENSED.
