Previously I mentioned the excellent Underscore.m project providing a wide number of helper methods for use when working with Cocoa classes based on the Underscore.js Javascript library.

Here’s another excellent Javascript project ported to Objective-C by Nicholas Bruning called StringScore.

StringScore solves the problem of searching strings for relevancy by providing super fast fuzzy string matching and providing a score from 0 to 1 based on the result with a result of 1 meaning the entire string was found within another string.

You can find StringScore on Github here.

A handy library to have around if you find yourself needing to search through strings.
