### Url format

The examples above have a format string as their first argument. This dictates which types of words the url should be made up of. The examples all use adjective adjective Animal. Any number or combination of keys may be used. A full list of keys is available below.

### Custom dictionaries

The Beautifurl object __init__ function takes an optional parameter dictionaryPath. This allows the default dictionaries to be swapped for user specified dictionaries.

>>> beautifurl = Beautifurl(dictionaryPath='~/dictionaries')

The dictionaries in this folder must be named KEY_… where KEY is a single character. All keys should be unique. Any characters after the underscore are ignored. See dictionaries folder for examples.

## Dictionaries

Key | Description | Size |
— | ———– | —- |
a | Adjectives | 223 |
A | Animals | 211 |
