An Objective-C Wrapper for Private Dictionary Services on Mac OS X

This library accesses private OS X APIs, making it unsuitable for apps submitted to the App Store.


#import "DictionaryKit.h"

TTTDictionary *dictionary = [TTTDictionary dictionaryNamed:DCSOxfordDictionaryOfEnglish];

NSString *term = @"apple";
for (TTTDictionaryEntry *entry in [dictionary entriesForSearchTerm:term]) {
    NSLog(@"%@", entry.text);
