While I don't have anything to contribute to the project idea itself,
I had a look at your code on GitHub and I'd like to recommend that in
the future, when writing code that will get published and used by
others, you use English. This especially applies to projects aimed to
benefit a wider community such as this one. You seem to be mixing the
two together which doesn't help readability either.
