Convert Greek to Greeklish in Ruby with greeklish_iso843
A common need for many Greek Rails projects I work on is converting Greek text to Greeklish, a process known as transliteration. I use it mainly to generate URL-safe slugs.
There are many ways to go about this, but the ISO 843 standard (based on the “ΕΛΟΤ 743” Greek standard) is the one used by the Greek State.
Today I decided to open-source it and the result is a Gem called greeklish_iso843.
Update: Now available as an online service.
