However, the original authors of Chewing dropped its development, and Chewing was highly coupled with xcin, which prevents from comprehensive applications. [-] Motivation Jim Huang started to separate core algorithm and logic layer of Chewing since 2002, and he integrated his efforts into a Chinese terminal named JMCCE as a part of its input method modules. Also, in 2004, he attempts to let more applications adapt these collaborated efforts, so that new contributors (mentioned in file AUTHORS) created brand new Chewing Project as the infrastructure and wrote serveral new bridges among IIIMF, SCIM, OpenVanilla, Microsoft IME, UIM, ibus, etc. [-] Status 1. bridge integration - works with xcin. - works with JMCCE. - works with IIIMF. - works with SCIM. - works with MacOS X (SpaceChewing). - works with Sun's Java Desktop System Input Method Framework. - works with OpenVanilla Input Method Framework. - works as standalone Microsoft Windows 32/64-bit (windows-chewing). - works with OXIM. - works with UIM. - works with ibus. - works with UCIMF. - works with mozc. - works with gcin/HIME. - works with fcitx. 2. support phonetic keyboard layout - Hsu - IBM - Gin-Yieh - Eten - Eten 26 keys - Dvorak - Dvorak Hsu - HanYu PinYin [-] Installation # ./configure --prefix=/usr (If you checkout from GIT, make sure running ./autogen.sh before this.) # make # make install see "INSTALL" for details. [-] Cross-build Example cross-build instructions: # CC=arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc ./configure \ --host=arm-none-linux-gnueabi \ --disable-shared --enable-static # make CC_FOR_BUILD=gcc [-] Build on Windows with MinGW To build libchewing on Windows, you need to setup MinGW and MSYS in your system. The installer of MinGW and MSYS is in the following link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Installer/mingw-get-inst/ In "Select Components" during installing, please select the following items: - MinGW Compiler Suite -> C Compiler - MSYS Basic System After installing, execute <MinGW directory>\msys\1.0\msys.bat (default is C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\msys.bat) to enter MSYS shell. If you get the source from the git repository you need additional step to make the source buildable; use the following commands to install necessary packages. - mingw-get install automake - mingw-get install autoconf - mingw-get install libtool Now you have the build environment for libchewing. However, you need to check the line end of source code is LF instead of CR/LF before running autogen.sh. The easily way to do this is using git: - git config core.autocrlf input - rm -rf * - get reset --hard Now you can run the following commands in MSYS shell to build libchewing: If you get the source from the git repository, run: - autogen.sh Then - configure - make If you run testchewing.exe (available after `make check') you will find that testchewing.exe cannot print the correct string. This is because testchewing.exe prints the UTF-8 string, while Windows cannot print it to console. [-] License See "COPYING" for details. [-] Authors & Contact Information See "AUTHORS" for details.
