The eros package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

A Haskell library for censoring text, using DansGuardian phraselists.

I converted the phraselists into JSON. You can view the converted phraselists here.

I recommend looking at the API documentation for Text.Eros if you want an idea of how to use the library.


- Fixed algorithm, added flat score for zero-depth message score.

Readme for eros

Readme for eros-


A Haskell library for text censorship, using DansGuardian Phraselists.

I converted those Phraselists to JSON. You can see the converted Phraselists here. There are compressed versions for use in your code.


I would love if people would contribute. QuickCheck tests are desperately needed.

As far as functionality goes, this library is pretty cut & dry. I already added all of the features I envisioned.


Eros is pretty heavy development, so the versions change quickly. I follow the Hackage standard of major.minor.even-more-minor.trivial, where major and minor entail API-breaking changes.

In the interest of not confusing myself, I keep Eros and the Eros Client on the same major.minor version. So, a bump in the major.minor number doesn't necessarily mean that there's an API-breaking change.


The best way to contact me is via IRC. I hang out on #archlinux and #haskell on FreeNode. My handles are l0cust and isomorpheous.
