The Levenshtein Python C extension module contains functions for fast computation of:
- Levenshtein (edit) distance, and edit operations
- string similarity
- approximate median strings, and generally string averaging
- string sequence and set similarity
This is a fork of ztane/python-Levenshtein, since the original project is no longer actively maintained.
- Python 2.7 or later
pip install levenshtein
