You can retrieve similar articles from similar_articles helper method or Middleman::Blog::BlogArticle#similar_articles instance method.

Currently this extension supports similarity engines: levenshtein-ffi, levenshtein and damerau-levenshtein. However, I think those are bit low accuracy, so I’m tring to create engines with tf-idf-similarity library.
