Development Dependencies

Special Thanks

  • Rachel Young: An Interface Designer. Made beautiful icons for Safarikai.
  • yaku: A project from Bryan McKelvey which has dict data as JavaScript files. I took them with some modifications.
  • Rikaichan: A popup Japanese-English/German/French/Russian dictionary tool for Firefox, Thunderbird and Seamonkey.
  • rikaikun: A port of rikaichan for chrome. Translate Japanese by hovering over words.
  • Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group: The home of the "EDICT Project" which has led to the compilation of a number of major Japanese-English dictionary files. Dictionary files used in Safarikai were converted from EDICT, ENAMDICT and others.
