Change log of RosaeNLG

[3.0.2] - 2021-10-19

Fixed

  • curl example is fixed

  • checking asm mode for 'paragraph' before throwing a paragraph error

[3.0.1] - 2021-07-25

Added

  • pug_mixins documentation

Fixed

  • tok var definition fix in tag function (thanks Mathias Winckel)

  • added the exception 'cama' (Spanish gender)

[3.0.0] - 2021-05-06

It is a major version because there are breaking changes.

Added

  • you may use RosaeNLG without using templates, accessing directly the low level JavaScript API; support is experimental. See Usage without Pug templates

  • there are now some "universal tenses" defined, which work for multiple languages; see Universal tenses table

Changed

There are 3 breaking changes that affect existing templates.

ref and refexpr must be reference to mixins

ref and refexpr must now be reference to mixins (and no more strings), and they must be referenced after being declared.

Table 1. Change on ref and refexpr
Before
- var PRODUCT = {};
- PRODUCT.ref = 'PRODUCT_ref';
mixin PRODUCT_ref(obj, params)

the ring …​.

After

- var PRODUCT = {};
mixin PRODUCT_ref(obj, params)

the ring - PRODUCT.ref = PRODUCT_ref; …​.

Your templates will probably fail at runtime if you don’t change them. To migrate:

  • search for .ref and .refexpr in your templates

  • put references instead of strings

  • move them after the referenced mixin declaration

when referencing a mixin, assembly separators properties must not use a string

Assembly separators (last_separator, begin_with_general, etc.) can either be a string or reference a mixin. When referencing a mixin, you must now put the mixin as a reference (no more as a string), and the mixin must have been defined before.

If you don’t migrate, your templates will not fail, but the text will be wrong: you will have the mixin name in the output.

To migrate, search for all assemblies (eachz and itemz) and change their properties if they reference mixins.

mixins and objects cannot have the same name

Mixins are now functions, which have a name; you cannot have mixins and objects having the same name, e.g.

mixin phone
  | bla bla
- var phone = {};

is now invalid.

Your templates will probably fail at runtime if you don’t change them. Rename conflicting mixins or objects.

  • basic support on any language

  • INDEFINITE determiner type in German

Changed

  • Non-breaking space in French punctuation (before : ! ; and ?)

[0.16.0] - 2019-05-11 (private version)

Fixed

  • de #[+value(9000)] (or any number) would contract into d'9 000. Now generates de 9000 properly.

  • Punctuation on French and English when using ? or !.

  • French possessives issues.

Added

  • Added dates formatting thanks to moment lib

  • Filtering can be explicitely disabled with disableFiltering: true in renderFile

  • Numbers formatting: use FORMAT in value to set a format directly used by numeral. See numeral.js formats. Very practical for currencies, %, etc. For instance +value(104000, {'FORMAT': '0a$'}) will output 104k€ when generating French.

  • det to add a determiner (French and German); current determiners are DEFINITE and DEMONSTRATIVE.

  • It is now easier to complete the params object with new values with addToParams: addToParams({xxx:yyy}) is equivalent to Object.assign({}, params, {xxx:yyy}.

  • adj property in value to add an adjective.

  • owner property in value to manage possessives. Does the same thing as thirdPossession.

  • recordSaid and deleteSaid do not need a `- ` before them no more.

  • Ability to globally choose the best synonymic alternatives with choosebest: see [choosebest].

  • Ability to compile and/or just render texts in browser, without using node.js. See [inbrowser].

  • Tutoriels can be run directly in the browser.

  • Improved French support, see below.

  • Partial support of German (de_DE), see below.

  • Ability to generate Yseop templates. Yseop is a NLG software vendor. See [yseop.adoc].

French

  • Cardinal numbers in letters (5 → cinq etc.) support thanks to written-number lib

  • Numbers formatting:

    • Basic support for French ordinal numbers: +value(1, {'ORDINAL_NUMBER':true }) = 1er thanks to numeral lib

    • Support for French cardinal numbers up to 100: +value(21, {'ORDINAL_TEXTUAL':true }) = vingt et unième

  • Improved French verbs support:

    • Any verb of all 3 verb groups are available thanks to lefff derived resource.

    • Supported tenses: PRESENT FUTUR IMPARFAIT PASSE_SIMPLE CONDITIONNEL_PRESENT IMPERATIF_PRESENT SUBJONCTIF_PRESENT SUBJONCTIF_IMPARFAIT PASSE_COMPOSE PLUS_QUE_PARFAIT.

    • For PASSE_COMPOSE and PLUS_QUE_PARFAIT: use aux property (ETRE or AVOIR) and agree property: elles #[+verb(getAnonFP(), {verb: 'sortir', tense:'PASSE_COMPOSE', aux:'ETRE', agree: getAnonFP()})] generates elles sont sorties. If aux is not set, some rules will apply (transitive verbs rather take AVOIR, etc.).

    • Use pronominal:true for pronominal form.

  • French gender shortcuts:

    • setRefGender(PRODUCT, 'bague'); will look for bague in the dictionnary and set PRODUCT gender to F.

    • #[+value('bague', {represents: PRODUIT})] will output bague and set the gender of PRODUIT to F via the dictionnary.

  • French contractions:

    • now manage ce/cet: ce arbre becomes cet arbre

    • manages "h aspiré": le hérisson vs l’hebdomadaire

  • French adjectives:

    • adjPos in value to set the position of the adjective

    • manages "h aspiré":

      • #[+value('homme', {det:'INDEFINITE', adj:'vieux', adjPos:'BEFORE'})] outputs un vieil homme

      • #[+value('hollandais', {det:'INDEFINITE', adj:'vieux', adjPos:'BEFORE'})] outputs un vieil hollandais

  • Very simple integrated POS tagger-like to simplify syntax: [+value('<un vieil hollandais>')] (or [+value('<une vieux hollandais>')]) outputs un vieil hollandais. See value.adoc#simplified.

German

  • German is de_DE.

  • Ponctuation (like English).

  • Dates and numbers.

  • Gender of words (M/F/N) thanks to german-pos-dict.

  • Cases thanks to german-pos-dict.

  • Determiners.

  • getMFN helper (makes the same job than getMorF).

  • Possessives (die Farbe der Gurke).

  • Adjectives (der alten Gurke).

  • Very simple integrated POS tagger-like to simplify syntax: #[+value("<der alte Gurke>", {case:'GENITIVE'})] outputs der alten Gurke. See value.adoc#simplified.

  • Updated librairies and linguistic resources documentation: see index.adoc#resources

  • Replaced better-title-case, which was deprecated on npm, by better-title-case. Changed the test case (titlecase rules seem to be complex).

  • monthName(date) (which generated the name of the month january february etc.) is deprecated as we now have moment lib. Use #[+value(date, 'MMMM')] instead.

  • Removed format-number-french (replaced by numeral).

  • Removed jslingua (replaced by custom lefff extract).

  • valWithUnit is deprecated and removed.

  • loadDict param is removed; ressources a just loaded when necessary.

Fixed

  • French support for month names did not work - fixed

  • getNextRep (used in French) didn’t work properly: the chosen representant was often not the one that getNextRep had predicted.

  • to force a specific synonym to trigger, use synz {force:3} (to trigger the 3rd one)

    • this is useful while developping

    • force is not compatible with {mode:'sequence'}

    • if the forced alternative is empty, it will still not trigger it

Changed

  • synz 'sequence' syntax is not valid no more: use synz {mode:'sequence'}

  • changed the random algorithm: it is still random but does not provide exactly the same numbers as before; you shall update your regression tests (and I’m sorry for that).

  • defaultSynoType renamed to defaultSynoMode

  • setSynoProps, setSize, getSize removed

[0.14.1] - 2018-04-12

  • automatic filtering unless noFilter is set to true

Added

  • new boolean parameter noFilter if don’t want to automatically filter the whole outputs

  • new structure keywords:

    • synz / syn to define synonyms: replaces +assemble

    • itemz / item to define list of items: replaces +syno_sentences

Fixed

  • a could be transformed into the by compromise in some situations

New syntax example: assemble
- setSize('listElts', 2)
mixin listElts(pos)
  case pos
    when 1
      | A
    when 2
      | B

t #[+assemble('listElts', {separator: ', ', last_separator: 'and'})]
