This gem allows to dramatically increase speed of 'parsing' scientific names. It stores parsed strings in Redis database and does not repeat work already done


Make sure you have Redis installed on your localhost

gem install parsley-store


parser =
parser.parse('Homo sapiens sapiens Linn. 1758')
parser.parse('Homo sapiens sapiens Linn. 1758')

The second parse must be much faster!

To get only canonical name:

parser.parse('Homo sapiens sapiens Linn. 1758', canonical_only: true)
