Foobar is a Python library for dealing with word pluralization.


Use the package manager pip to install foobar.

It's very easy to make some words bold and other words italic with Markdown. You can even link to Google! gt

Sometimes you want numbered lists:

  1. One
  2. Two
  3. Three

Sometimes you want bullet points:

  • Start a line with a star
  • Profit!


  • Dashes work just as well
  • And if you have sub points, put two spaces before the dash or star:
  • Like this
  • And this
# Structured documents

Sometimes it's useful to have different levels of headings to structure your documents. Start lines with a `#` to create headings. Multiple `##` in a row denote smaller heading sizes.

### This is a third-tier heading

You can use one `#` all the way up to `######` six for different heading sizes.

If you'd like to quote someone, use the > character before the line:

> Coffee. The finest organic suspension ever devised... I beat the Borg with it.
> - Captain Janeway

There are many different ways to style code with GitHub's markdown. If you have inline code blocks, wrap them in backticks: `var example = true`.  If you've got a longer block of code, you can indent with four spaces:

    if (isAwesome){
      return true

GitHub also supports something called code fencing, which allows for multiple lines without indentation:

if (isAwesome){ return true }

And if you'd like to use syntax highlighting, include the language:

if (isAwesome){
  return true

GitHub supports many extras in Markdown that help you reference and link to people. If you ever want to direct a comment at someone, you can prefix their name with an @ symbol: Hey @kneath — love your sweater!

But I have to admit, tasks lists are my favorite:

  • [x] This is a complete item
  • [ ] This is an incomplete item

When you include a task list in the first comment of an Issue, you will see a helpful progress bar in your list of issues. It works in Pull Requests, too!

And, of course emoji!

pip install foobar

## Usage

import foobar

foobar.pluralize('word') # returns 'words'
foobar.pluralize('goose') # returns 'geese'
foobar.singularize('phenomena') # returns 'phenomenon'
