You you can install via npm install locutus and
require it via require('locutus/php/strings/levenshtein').
You could also require the strings module in full
so that you could access strings.levenshtein instead.
This function targets ES5, but as of Locutus 2.0.2 we also support
ES6 functions. Locutus transpiles to ES5 before publishing to npm.
A community effort
Not unlike Wikipedia, Locutus is an ongoing community effort. Our philosophy follows
The McDonald’s Theory.
This means that we don't consider it to be a bad thing that many of
our functions are first iterations, which may still have their
fair share of issues. We hope that these flaws will inspire others to come up with better ideas.
This way of working also means that we don't offer any
production guarantees, and recommend to use Locutus inspiration
and learning purposes only.
Please note that these examples are distilled from test cases that automatically verify
our functions still work correctly. This could explain some quirky ones.
