An algorithm provides scores between 0.0 (no match) to 1.0 (perfect match) for a comparison of two strings.

The algorithm is designed for auto-completion. For string similarity, please check Levenshtein distance (Wagner–Fischer algorithm).

Usage

Include the library:

from stringscore import liquidmetal

Score any string against an abbreviation:

>>> liquidmetal.score('FooBar', 'foo')
0.95
>>> liquidmetal.score('FooBar', 'fb')
0.916666666667
>>> liquidmetal.score('Foo Bar', 'fb')
0.928571428571
>>> liquidmetal.score('Foo Bar', 'baz')
0.0
>>> liquidmetal.score('Foo Bar', '')
0.8
