Installation

This plugin requires grawlix.

npm install grawlix-racism --save

Usage

var grawlix = require('grawlix');
grawlix.setDefaults({
  plugins: [
    {
      plugin: require('grawlix-racism'),
      options: {
        style: 'nazi'
      }
    }
  ]
  // other options...
});
// or alternately:
grawlix.loadPlugin('grawlix-racism', {
  style: 'nazi'
});

Options

style

Type: String
Default: 'nazi'

Sets the distinct style of grawlix used to replace racial and ethnic slurs. By default, any slurs found by this plugin will be replaced using its own 'nazi' style, as opposed to whatever main style has been set in the grawlix options. This is intended to specifically highlight and call out filtered content that uses racially-insensitive language.

To turn this feature off, set this property to false in the plugin options:

grawlix.setDefaults({
  plugins: [
    {
      plugin: require('grawlix-racism'),
      options: {
        style: false
      }
    }
  ]
});
// or:
grawlix.loadPlugin('grawlix-racism', {
  style: false
});

You can also use this option to specify a distinct style other than 'nazi':

grawlix.setDefaults({
  style: 'redacted',
  plugins: [
    {
      plugin: require('grawlix-racism'),
      options: {
        style: 'asterix'
      }
    }
  ]
});
// result of these settings: slurs will be replaced by '*' characters,
// while other obscenities will be replaced by '█'s.

Styles

Nazi

Single-Character Grawlix Style
Name String: 'nazi'
Character: '卐'

grawlix.setDefaults({
  style: 'nazi',
  filters: [
    {
      word: 'racialslur',
      pattern: /racialslur/i
    }
  ]
});

grawlix('some kind of racialslur');
// output: 'some kind of 卐卐卐卐卐卐卐卐卐卐'
