##Installation pip install profanity
##Usage from profanity import profanity profanity.contains_profanity("You smell like shit.") Out: True
profanity.censor("You smell like shit.") Out: 'You smell like !@#$.' # load my own custom bad words custom_badwords = ['happy', 'jolly', 'merry'] profanity.load_words(custom_badwords) profanity.contains_profanity("Have a merry day! :)") Out: True
- Load your own wordlist, or use the bundled one.
- Censors words using standard censor characters (!@#$%), or load your own censor characters.
- Uses a pool of censor characters to create a more natural censor string.
- Censors all instances of a given word with the same censor string - for easy correlation.
- Support for whole words vs. partial words
- Regex support
