‘Similarity’ Approximate String Matching library is now on GitHub

In a Guerrilla Analytics environment, available tooling is often limited. There is either not enough budget, time or IT flexibility to get all the tools you want. On many jobs, I find myself using Microsoft SQL Server as the project RDBMS. Out of the box, SQL Server does not yet have a fuzzy match capability. You need to install additional tools such as SSIS to avail of fuzzy matching. Even then, SSIS is a GUI-driven application which contradicts a key Guerrilla Analytics Principle. In a Guerrilla Analytics environment, you would much rather have fuzzy match capabilities available in SQL code. This is where the following Similarity library comes in handy.
