A NSSpellServer that forwards requests to LanguageTool for grammar checking

This is a quick-and-dirty hack to use LanguageTool as a spell/grammar server on Mac OS X.

To use it, build the project, download LanguageTool and run it as a local HTTP service at port 8081.

To run LanguageTool:

java -cp languagetool-server.jar org.languagetool.server.HTTPServer --port 8081

To create and install the service:

  • Download the project.
  • Do a ``pod install'' to install dependencies (you need cocoapods).
  • Open LanguageToolServer.xcworkspace (Not the xcproject).
  • In the project LanguageToolApp-Info.plist, edit the service and add or remove the desired languages (as iso codes)
  • Build LanguageTool.service
  • Copy the LanguageTool.service bundle to ~/Library/Services
  • To force the system to pick it up, go to the terminal and execute:

    /System/Library/CoreServices/pbs -update

You can then use TextEdit or any editor using the standard spelling and grammar dialog to check your texts.
