README

unicode-data provides Haskell APIs to efficiently access the unicode character database. Performance is the primary goal in the design of this package.

The Haskell data structures are generated programmatically from the unicode character database (UCD) files. The latest unicode version supported by this library is 13.0.0.

This package is far from complete. Currently it supports normalization related functions and a few other properties, primarily to support unicode-transforms package. More properties can be added as needed by any other packages or use cases.

Please see the haddock documentation for reference documentation.

Unicode database version update

To update the unicode version please update the version number in ucd.sh.

To download the unicode database, run ucd.sh download from the top level directory of the repo to fetch the database in ./ucd.

$ ./ucd.sh download

To generate the Haskell data structure files from the downloaded database files, run ucd.sh generate from the top level directory of the repo.

$ ./ucd.sh generate

Running property doctests

Temporarily add QuickCheck to build depends of library.

$ cabal build
$ cabal-docspec --check-properties --property-variables c

Licensing

unicode-data is an open source project available under a liberal Apache-2.0 license.
