I don’t know too much about Ruby programming, but from what I can see, it looks like it may be easy for me to tweak the plugin to use Spanish or Swahili by just changing the dataset: 'en-us' line to es or sw in this code block:
My intention was to just launch it and see if there’s interest in the community. This plugin is a bit special to me because I made the spec for it almost 3 years ago when I didn’t have the know how of how to build it.
The one thing which I didn’t touch was the lemma api to fetch the singular form of words. Its important because the oxford api especially(and probably others) work with singular form. That would be valuable too.
Hi @fzngagan … I have an interesting use case, and I wonder if your plugin could help me.
I run a forum that is for people with hearing loss and there are lots and lots of terms that newbies need to learn. We have a wiki with some definitions, but it would be very handy if we could add system definitions and have defined terms and acronyms be automatically underlined without the user setting the [dict] tag. Having the Oxford suggested definitions is handy, but I imagine many of these words will need custom definition.
We have Linkify words in post Theme Component but it goes only as far as converting an appearance of a word to a link. It can certainly be forked to achieve what you’re suggesting. You can hire a developer from #marketplace if you’re happy to sponsor the work.
