Spelling tools


Everyone makes typos. This includes people writing documentation and comments, but it also includes programmers naming variables, functions, apis, classes, and filenames.

Often, programmers will use InitialCapitalization, camelCase, ALL_CAPS, or IDLCase when naming their things. When they do this, it makes it much harder for naive spelling tools to recognize misspellings, and as such, with a really high false-positive rate, people don't tend to enable spellchecking at all.

This repository's tools are capable of tolerating all of those variations. Specifically, w understands enough about how programmers name things that it can split the above conventions into word-like things for checking against a dictionary.

See workflows for how these tools are usually used together. See tools for a description of each tool and sample usage.

Path Overview

These tools are designed to live in ~/bin, I haven't spent the time to have them fish for their own locations. I'm not a huge fan of bash and would rather use either portable sh or perl.

They're built on top of hg, but you could probably make an hg script / symlink that runs git w/ minimal effort.

CI Integration

It is possible to integrate this with your favorite CI. I'm slowly working on this.

I've published a GitHub Action:

My initial work was done for the checkstyle project (see the Travis hook).
