Building from source

If you need to hyphenate texts in languages other than Russian and English you can find additional language patterns in the patterns repository.

Include language patterns you need as a dependencies in the package.json file, spanish for example:

"dependencies": {
    "": "^0.2.1",

Edit the src/hyphenate.js file and add new language patterns:

import es from '';// Import spanish hyphenation patterns

var engines = new Array();
engines.push(new hypher(ru));
engines.push(new hypher(en));
engines.push(new hypher(es)); // Use spanish patterns as hyphenation engine

Now you can build plugin from source:

# Install the dependencies
npm install

# Build an watch for changes
npm run watch

# Watch for sketch plugins logs
skpm log -f

# Always reload scripts before running
defaults write ~/Library/Preferences/com.bohemiancoding.sketch3.plist AlwaysReloadScript -bool YES
