macOS

Each dictionary can be installed on OS X by following this StackExchange answer.

Build

I’ve only tested this on macOS, but there you at least need to install:

  • wget:
    brew install wget
    (crawling)
  • hunspell:
    brew install hunspell
    (many dictionaries)
  • coreutils:
    brew install coreutils
    (many dictionaries)
  • ispell:
    brew install ispell
    (German)

Note that the GNU replacements should be setup in PATH to overwrite macOS defaults.

Contributing

Dictionaries can be added if they:

  • have a significant affix file (not just a
    .dic
    file)
  • have an open source license
  • are convertible to UTF-8 with iconv(1)

The crawling and building is done in

script/crawl.sh
. Add code there, similar to the existing ones, to include new dictionaries.
