A Pig Latin Translation Microservice

Project description

# Pig Latin Translation Microservice [![Build Status](]( [![Coverage Status](]( [![docs](](

A flask-based microservice to translate english text to pig latin. [Wikipedia Link](

> Pig Latin is a language game in which words in English are altered. The objective is to conceal the words from others not familiar with the rules.

Pig Latin is simply a form of jargon with rules. The Rules are described later

## Demo
You can try your own examples at a web form [here](

## Example Usage

The fastest way to get started is to request this service from the demo api

### Curl
curl --request POST \
--url \
--form 'text=How do you say ... in Pig Latin?'

### Python
import requests
url = ""
payload = {"text": "How do you say ... in Pig Latin?"}
response = requests.request("POST", url, data=payload)
print response.text

You should see a response like
"text": "Owhay oday ouyay aysay ... inyay Igpay Atinlay?"

## Installation

If you would like to run the service locally, there are multiple ways

### Dockerfile
docker pull ja1chaudhary/pig-latin-translation-service
docker run --name pig-latin-service -p 8000:8000 -d ja1chaudhary/pig-latin-translation-service

### Python Package
To install the python package, simply
pip install piglatintranslation

### Source
git clone
cd pig-latin-translation-microservice

## Rules

If word begins with consonant sound, all letters before the initial vowel are placed at the end of the word sequence. Then, "ay" is added.

* pig => igpay
* banana => ananabay
* trash => ashtray
* happy => appyhay
* duck => uckday
* glove => oveglay

If word begins with vowel sounds or a silent letter, one just adds "yay" to the end.
