Go Avro Phonetic Save

Golang implementation of Avro Phonetic

Project README


Go port of the popular Bengali phonetic-typing software Avro Phonetic. website


go-avro-phonetic provides a go package which includes a text parser that converts Bangla written in Roman script to its phonetic equivalent in Bangla. It implements the Avro Phonetic Dictionary Search Library by Mehdi Hasan Khan.

In addition this library provides a cli to parse text file or text via console.


This package is inspired from Rifat Nabi's jsAvroPhonetic. So far, the code is a go port of jsAvroPhonetic.

And acknowledges Kaustav Das Modak for pyAvroPhonetic.


$ go get -u -v github.com/sadlil/go-avro-phonetic/...


Import the library as

import (
    avro "github.com/sadlil/go-avro-phonetic"

With Built in Rules:

// Parse() tries to parse the given string
// In case of failure it returns an erros
text, err := avro.Parse("ami banglay gan gai")
if err != nil {
    // Handle error

fmt.Println(test) // আমি বাংলায় গান গাই

// MustParse() tries to parse the given string
// In case of failure it panics
text := avro.MustParse("ami banglay gan gai")
fmt.Println(text) // আমি বাংলায় গান গাই

With Custom Rules: avro.ParseWith() receives an plugable Dictionary interface{} to support custom parsing.

data.LoadJSON() provides support for overloading custom dictionary from JSON, which can be used for custom parsing.

customDictonary := []byte("custom dictonary json")

dict, err := data.LoadJSON(customDictonary)
if err == nil {
    text := avro.ParseWith(dict, "ami banglay gan gai")
    fmt.Println(text) // custom parsed text


Avro command line interface to parse data using command line.


$ go get -u -v github.com/sadlil/go-avro-phonetic/avrocli
$ go install github.com/sadlil/go-avro-phonetic/avrocli


Parse a test:

$ avrocli parse ami banglay gan gai
আমি বাংলায় গান গাই  # this could need font support for cli.

Parse a file:

$ avrocli parse -f my_bangla.txt # this will create a my_bangla.bn.txt file
                                 # in the same directory as the given file
                                 # with parsed bangla texts.
