dictcc in Haskell Build Status

This is a small command line tool for accessing dict.cc without the hassle of using an actual browser.

Written in good old efficient Haskell.

Usage

dictcc SOURCE_LANGUAGE TARGET_LANGUAGE WORD

SOURCE_LANGUAGE and TARGET_LANGUAGE are the two letter shorthands used by dict.cc aka "en" for English, "de" for Deutsch and so on.

Inspiration

This project is inspired by dict.cc.py or rather born out of my frustration with seeing error messages about deprecated features from BeautifulSoup every time it is used. Thus I decided to write a new client in Haskell.

Though the idea came from dict.cc.py the code was written anew from the ground up.
