This project helps you to shorten strings on the command line using common abbreviations and some nifty algorithms. The idea is that you can add this tool to your automated flows to reduce the length of longer strings so they can be safely used in other contexts. The origin use case being the ability to turn long branch names in to names of AWS CloudFormation stack names. The tool is also able to translate between different styles, such as camel case, Pascal case, kebab and custom case. It's your choice really. You can also use your own custom list of abbreviations.
