Description

Have you ever seen things like "view your order(s)" in an application? If we know how many orders there are, we should pluralize the word "order" appropriately. Another example is showing detailed dates and times when a more simple format like "2 days ago," "yesterday," or "tomorrow" is a more appropriate, more human representation of the data. Humanizer also makes it trivial to convert computerized strings such as Pascal case method names into normal sentences, or turn numeric values into word equivalents. It even makes it easy to work with byte sizes such as writing (10.605).Kilobytes() and creating strings such as "10.61 KB" or ".01 MB". Scenarios like these are made easy with Humanizer, without us having to write and test the code ourselves.
