abbreviate

Shorten your strings using common abbreviations.

codecov godoc report card

Supported by Tidelift

Motivation

This tool comes out of a frustration of the name of resources (in my specific case, AWS stack names) being too long. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have a tool that would be able to suggest shorter alternatives if your original name is too long.

Installation

go get github.com/dnnrly/abbreviate
make build

Usage

This tool will attempt to shorten the string provided using common abbreviations
specified by language and 'set'. Word boundaries will be detected using title case
and non-letters.

Hosted on Github - https://github.com/dnnrly/abbreviate

If you spot a bug, feel free to raise an issue or fix it and make a pull
request. We're really interested to see more abbreviations added or corrected.

Usage:
  abbreviate [action] [flags]
  abbreviate [command]

Available Commands:
  camel       Abbreviate a string and convert it to camel case
  help        Help about any command
  original    Abbreviate the string using the original word boundary separators
  pascal      Abbreviate a string and convert it to pascal case
  print       Print abbreviations in this set
  snake       Abbreviate a string and convert it to snake case

Flags:
  -c, --custom string     Custom abbreviation set
  -h, --help              help for abbreviate
  -l, --language string   Language to select (default "en-us")
      --list              List all abbreviate sets by language
  -m, --max int           Maximum length of string, keep on abbreviating while the string is longer than this limit
  -n, --newline           Add newline to the end of the string (default true)
  -s, --set string        Abbreviation set (default "common")

Use "abbreviate [command] --help" for more information about a command.
