Shorten your strings using common abbreviations.
This tool comes out of a frustration of the name of resources (in my specific case, AWS stack names) being too long. Wouldn't it be nice if we could have a tool that would be able to suggest shorter alternatives if your original name is too long.
go get github.com/dnnrly/abbreviate make build
This tool will attempt to shorten the string provided using common abbreviations specified by language and 'set'. Word boundaries will be detected using title case and non-letters. Hosted on Github - https://github.com/dnnrly/abbreviate If you spot a bug, feel free to raise an issue or fix it and make a pull request. We're really interested to see more abbreviations added or corrected.
