inflection

A port of inflection-js to node.js module

Description

inflection-js is a port of the functionality from Ruby on Rails' Active Support Inflection classes into Javascript. inflection is a port of inflection-js to node.js npm package. Instead of extending JavaScript native String object like inflection-js does, inflection separate the methods to a independent package to avoid unexpected behaviors.

Requires

Checkout package.json for dependencies.

Installation

Install inflection through npm

npm install inflection
