Zidian

Zidian is a simple Chinese-English dictionary written in ruby. It only works under Unix systems, as it uses specific commands (sed, grep, less), at least for now.

Install

gem install zidian

Examples of use

Zidian.find(237) # returns the Word from the 237 id (line number in the file)

Zidian.find("culture") # returns all the words that contain "culture"

Zidian.find("文") # returns all the words that contain "文"

Zidian.find([653,34]) # returns the 2 words corresponding to the given ids

Zidian.find("wei2 cheng2") # returns the words corresponding to the given pinyin with tones

Zidian.find("wei cheng") # returns the words corresponding to the given pinyin without tones
