slugify_unicode = Slugify(translate=None)

slugify_url = Slugify()
slugify_url.to_lower = True
slugify_url.stop_words = ('a', 'an', 'the')
slugify_url.max_length = 200

slugify_filename = Slugify()
slugify_filename.separator = '_'

slugify_filename.max_length = 255

slugify_ru = Slugify(pretranslate=CYRILLIC)
slugify_de = Slugify(pretranslate=GERMAN)
slugify_el = Slugify(pretranslate=GREEK)


from slugify import Slugify, slugify, slugify_unicode
from slugify import slugify_url, slugify_filename
from slugify import slugify_ru, slugify_de

slugify('one kožušček')                       # one-kozuscek
