Fixes typos in text using regular expressions, based on RegExTypoFix from Wikipedia

Project description

Topy (anagram of “typo”) is a Python script to fix typos in text, based on the RegExTypoFix project from Wikipedia and AutoWikiBrowser.

Topy runs with either Python 2 or 3; you need to install dependencies listed in requirements.txt, easiest way is to use pip:

pip install -r requirements.txt


Usage: [options] FILES...

  -h, --help   show this help message and exit
  -q, --quiet  silence information messages
  -a, --apply  overwrite files in place


Code style:

  • In general follow the Python PEP-8 coding style, except line length can go up to 120 chars.
  • Strings that have meaning for humans use double quotes ("), otherwise single quotes ('). When in doubt, don’t worry about it.

Submit your changes as pull requests on Github.
