ristilaatija, a maker for Finnish cryptic crosswords

This is a fork of Phil by Keiran King. It is adapted for cryptic crosswords in Finnish (piilosana), some of which I've made and published.


I probably will not fix issues filed by other people. There are known bugs and I have my own feature wishlist waiting for when I have motivation.

Pull requests for useful features may be accepted, but it might be a better idea to send them upstream to the Phil repo.

I'm grateful for contributions, but I just do not wish to spend much time on this project.

Phil (and ristilaatija) uses Font Awesome icons and jsPDF (along with jsPDF-AutoTable) for generating PDFs.

The software ships with the Finnish word list kotus_sanat.txt whose words are published by Kotimaisten kielten keskus under the GNU LGPL, and modified into a suitable format by volunteers.
