Detect Language API Node.js Client

npm version Build Status

Node.js wrapper for the Detect Language API.

Installation

npm install detectlanguage [--save]

Configuration

Before using Detect Language API client you have to setup your personal API key. You can get it by signing up at detectlanguage.com

var DetectLanguage = require('detectlanguage');

var detectlanguage = new DetectLanguage('YOUR API KEY');

Usage

Language Detection

Takes a text string and returns a list of detections.

var text = "Hello! How are you?";

detectlanguage.detect(text).then(function(result) {
  console.log(JSON.stringify(result));
});

Response

[
  {
    "language": "en",
    "isReliable": true,
    "confidence": 18.2
  }
]

Batch Detection (recommended)

Takes an array of texts and returns a list of detections. It is much faster than doing request for each text individually.

var texts = ['šešios žąsys', 'Strč prst skrz krk'];

detectlanguage.detect(texts).then(function(result) {
  console.log(JSON.stringify(result));
});

Response

[
  [
    {
      "language": "lt",
      "isReliable": true,
      "confidence": 5.5
    }
  ],
  [
    {
      "language": "cs",
      "isReliable": true,
      "confidence": 3.645
    },
    ...
  ]
]
