ncdulo Version bump, CHANGELOG update
You know what this means? Release time! Originally was not thinking to
do a release this soon. However, I *did* get Wikipedia functional again
with a brand new `WikiProvider`. I feel the minor version bump is
applicable in this case due to it being new functionality, without any
backwards incompatible changes being made.

As part of the `` update -- I noticed a few lines where we
missed the PyPi link. Let's add those in to maintain the same markdown
blocks between GitHub Release and the CHANGELOG entries.

Utilities for performing actions on words, or collections of words. This is a slowly expanding library of functions, conversions, and lookups added to as I see fit. Mostly intended for fun, or convenience. Not sure what it will grow into, but it's a nice laid back project.

Installation & Use

Recommended to install into a virtual environment of your desired flavor. I currently recommend virtualenvwrapper, but am using the stock venv module in the example below for simplicity. Save the user on configuring a dependency if they don't have to

# Clone the repo
git clone
cd word_tools

# Create a new virtual environment, and enable it
python -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate

# Update Pip & friends. Optional, but recommended
pip install --upgrade pip

# Install dependencies and create executable
pip install .
# If you receive errors about "No module named 'word_tools'", try this
pip install --editable .

# With venv active, the path will already be in path
# Otherwise, the path to executables will be
# .env/bin/wt.{urban,merriam,wikipedia}
wt.urban WORD [LIMIT=0]
wt.merriam hacker 2
wt.wikipedia python 1

# Deactivate the virtual environment when finished
You can’t perform that action at this time.
