Convert English to Doge!

Please note that this gem is using an extremely simple language natural processor, so parsing is not perfect, but it works.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'dogeify'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install dogeify


There are several ways of using Dogeify. The first way is to go through the Dogeify class itself.

require 'dogeify'

dogeifier =
dogeifier.process('My grandmom gave me a sweater for Christmas.')
# => "so grandmom. such sweater. very christmas. wow."

The second way is to modify the String or Array classes by including either core extension.

require 'dogeify/core_ext/array'   # extends only Array
require 'dogeify/core_ext/string'  # extends only String
require 'dogeify/core_ext'         # extends both Array/String

'My grandmom gave me a sweater for Christmas.'.dogeify
# => "so grandmom. such sweater. very christmas. wow."

['I like turtles.', 'It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.'].dogeify
# => ["so turtles. wow.", "so darkest. such moments. very light. wow."]

Lastly, the Dogeify class along with all core extensions can be loaded via a single require.

require 'dogeify/all'


For each of the above method calls, an optional options hash can be passed in to specify additional processing preferences. Currently, only the ignore option exists, accepting a string/regex value (or array of string/regex values) that should not be converted to doge.

dogifier.process('My grandmom gave me a sweater for Christmas.', ignore: 'grandmom')
# => "so sweater. such christmas. wow."

'My grandmom gave me a sweater for Christmas'.dogeify(ignore: [/christmas/i, 'sweater'])
# => "so grandmom. wow."
