daijisen

why

My Japanese professor wanted a web app that could quickly find japanese-to-japanese definitions using Yahoo's daijisen dictionary.

installation

gem install daijisen

usage

Pass some furigana to a new daijisen query object

query = Daijisen::Query.new("漢字")

You will now have access to a list of readings, examples, and links to specific definitions

query.defs[0].link
query.defs[0].reading
query.defs[0].example

頑張って
