README

Provides ways to split strings into smaller entities depending on the used tokenizers.

You can chain different tokenizers to a tokenizer-chain to get the results you want.

Currently this library provides these Tokenizers:

  • WhitespaceTokenizer to split strings on every whitespace. Can be used to split a sentence into single words.
  • CamelCaseTokenizer to split CamelCased-Strings into separate tokens.

Build Status

Installation

Install using composer by adding the following line to your composer.conf-files require-Section:

"org_heigl/tokenizer" : "dev-master"

Usage

Usage is rather simple:

use Org_Heigl\Tokenizer\TokenizerQueue;
use Org_Heigl\Tokenizer\Tokenizers;
// Create a new Tokenizer-Queue
$tokenizer = new TokenizerQueue();

// Add single tokenizers to the queue
// First a Whitespace tokenizer
$tokenizer->addTokenizer(new Tokenizers\WhitespaceTokenizer());
// Then a CamelCase-Tokenizer
$tokenizer->addTokenizer(new Tokenizers\CamelCaseTokenizer());

// Finally tokenize a given string
$tokenList = $tokenizer->tokenize('A String with WhiteSpace');

var_dump((array) $tokenList);

// This will print the following:
/*
array(8) {
  [0] =>

    protected $token =>
