Quick start
===========

DiacriticsFu::escape("éphémère")
=> "ephemere"

DiacriticsFu::escape("räksmörgås")
=> "raksmorgas"

What?
=====

A small library to remove accents from a string. Relies on ActiveSupport.

Created because I needed a simple way to remove most diacritics from French sentences, while generating slugs (url) for a CMS (either Mephisto or ComatoseCMS).

Nb: this approach is not the fastest way to achieve this. It's good enough for me though.
