FFI::Aspell

FFI::Aspell is an FFI binding for the Aspell library. It was mainly written as Raspell, a C binding for Aspell, is buggy and no longer maintained by the main author as of April 2012.

Requirements

  • Ruby 1.9.3 or newer
  • Aspell
  • Aspell language packs for your used language(s)

For running the tests the following language packs are required:

  • Dutch: aspell-nl
  • English: aspell-en
  • Greek: aspell-el

Aspell can be installed as following:

  • Arch Linux: sudo pacman -S aspell
  • Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install aspell libaspell-dev
  • OS X: brew install aspell --lang=en

Usage

Install the gem:

gem install ffi-aspell

Load it:

require 'ffi/aspell'

The primary class is FFI::Aspell::Speller, this class can be used to check for spelling errors and the likes:

speller = FFI::Aspell::Speller.new('en_US')

if speller.correct?('cookie')
  puts 'The word "cookie" is correct'
else
  puts 'The word "cookie" is incorrect'
end

speller.close

You can use Speller.open to avoid having to call #close explicitly:

FFI::Aspell::Speller.open('en_US') do |speller|
  puts speller.correct?('cookie')
end
