Golang : Fuzzy string search or approximate string matching example



Tags : golang fuzzy-search approximate-string-matching

For this tutorial, we will learn how to do a fuzzy search in Golang. Fuzzy search or approximate string matching algorithm is a technique of finding strings that match a pattern approximately. The algorithm is useful to determine a question or sentence intent, sentence auto-complete/suggest and building artificial intelligence chat bot.

Here you go!

 package main

 import (
 "fmt"
 "github.com/renstrom/fuzzysearch/fuzzy"
 )

 func main() {

 // find
 input := []string{"example", "help", "assistance", "existence"}

 fuzzyMatches := fuzzy.Find("ex", input)

 fmt.Println("Matches found : ", fuzzyMatches)
 }

Happy coding!
