Project description

profanity
=========

A Python library to check for (and clean) profanity in strings.

##Installation
pip install profanity


##Usage
from profanity import profanity
profanity.contains_profanity("You smell like shit.")
Out: True

profanity.censor("You smell like shit.")
Out: 'You smell like !@#$.'

## Features

* Load your own wordlist, or use the bundled one.
* Censors words using standard censor characters (!@#$%), or load your own
censor characters.
* Uses a pool of censor characters to create a more natural censor string.
* Censors all instances of a given word with the same censor string - for
easy correlation.
