Normit Build Status NPM version Coverage Status

Normit is an easy way to translate stuff in your terminal. You can check out its Ruby gem version termit.

Installation

npm install normit -g

Usage

normit 'source_language' 'target_language' 'text'

Example:

normit en es "hey cowboy where is your horse?"
=> "Hey vaquero dónde está tu caballo?"

normit fr en "qui est votre papa?" => "Who's Your Daddy?"

Parenthesis are not necessary for text data input:

bash
normit fr ru qui est votre papa
=> "Кто твой папочка?"

Speech synthesis

Specify a -t (talk) flag to use speech synthesis (requires mpg123):

bash
normit en fr "hey cowboy where is your horse?" -t
=> "Hey cowboy où est votre cheval ?" # and a french voice says something about a horse

You can use normit as a speech synthesizer of any supported language without having to translate anything:

bash
normit en en "hold your horses cowboy !" -t
=> "hold your horses cowboy !" # and an english voice asks you to hold on

Learning language when committing to git (zsh only)

Idea by Nedomas . See and hear your messages translated to target lang every time you commit:

In ~/.zshrc

bash
export LANG=es
git(){[[ "[email protected]" = commit\ -m* ]]&&normit en $LANG ${${@:$#}//./} -t;command git [email protected]}
I am no shell ninja so if you know how to make it work in bash then please submit a PR.

Language codes:

Requirements

Works with node 0.10.0 and higher.

To use speech synthesis you need to have mpg123 installed.

For Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install mpg123

For MacOSX:

brew install mpg123

For Windows: Download Site or Direct Download mpg123-1.24.0-x86-64.zip
