NFL Team Identification
Identify NFL teams from full names, nicknames, and malformed names.
Install with npm:
npm install nfl-teams
nfl-teams can be imported just like any Node.js module:
teams = require "nfl-teams"
teams module defines one method,
matchTeam, which takes a single string as a parameter. Another string is returned, with the full team name (city and formal nickname). As an example,
teams.matchTeam "stillers" # => "Pittsburgh Steelers"
matchTeam assumes that the team name it's given is in English and is, in fact, an actual team name. If the name isn't recognized,
matchTeam will return a best guess, or an empty string if
str isn't a string or has a length of zero.
