This was a short term solution for failed installs of node-stringprep.
node-stringprep now gracefully handles failed installs, therefore this is no longer required.
Exposes predefined Unicode normalization functions that are required by many protocols. This is just a binding to ICU, which is said to be fast.
npm i node-stringprep-icu
apt-get install libicu-dev
port install icu +devel
brew install icu4c ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/<VERSION>/bin/icu-config /usr/local/bin/icu-config ln -s /usr/local/Cellar/icu4c/<VERSION>/include/* /usr/local/include
If experiencing issues with 'homebrew' installing version 50.1 of icu4c, try the following:
brew search icu4c brew tap homebrew/versions brew versions icu4c cd $(brew --prefix) && git pull --rebase git checkout c25fd2f $(brew --prefix)/Library/Formula/icu4c.rb brew install icu4c
var StringPrep = require('node-stringprep-icu').StringPrep; var prep = new StringPrep('nameprep'); prep.prepare('Äffchen') // => 'äffchen'
