import stringSimilarity, { sorensenDice } from "string-similarity-alg";

const jaroWinklerResult = stringSimilarity("jaro-winkler").compare("game of thrones", "lord of the rings");
const sorensenDiceResult = sorensenDice.compare("game of thrones", "lord of the rings");

Levenshtein1.0.0Small strings / similar wordsfarmville / faremviel
Soresen-Dice1.0.0Fuzzy matching, very mispelled words or poorly writtenuser-home-page.component.ts / usrhompcomp
Jaro-Winkler1.0.0Same as Jaro similarity, gives more weight to strings that have the same first letters-
Jaro Similarity1.0.0General purpose, use this if you don't think any of the others are valid-
