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.

Before we get any further, I'm really interested in how you feel about this tool. Please take the time to fill in this short survey: https://forms.gle/6xV1gB8yKGdmuHJ78

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'. Common prefixes and suffixes are also abbreviated.
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.
