Lexidest

A word meaning finder daemon for Linux!!

Lexidest = Lexi(word: in Greek) + idest(meaning: in Latin)

# First check that jq and xclip are installed or not
# jq is a json parsing tool and xclip is a tool for clipboard
sudo apt install jq
sudo apt install xclip
#For cloning by HTTPS
git clone --shallow-submodules https://github.com/Jenil2910/Lexidest.git

#For cloning by SSH
git clone --shallow-submodules git@github.com:Jenil2910/Lexidest.git

mv Lexidest ~/.lexidest
cd ~/.lexidest
make
chmod +x script.sh
./lexidest.out

Now get the meaning of any word by selecting it.

Also note that you can define it as a command by putting the line given below in your ~/.bashrc file

alias lexidest="~/.lexidest/lexidest.out"

You can also put ~/.lexidest/lexidest.out in ~/.xprofile. So that lexidest will start at the login time.

Killing lexidest

If it got stuck at any point you can kill the process by killall lexidest.out

You can’t perform that action at this time.
