Lexitron API

This is the backend of English-Thai Dictionary แปลอังกฤษ-ไทย Chrome Extension

Dictionary data is from Lexitron project by NECTEC. It's parsed into a dynamodb database through a small program in parselexutil folder.

The previous iteration of this same program was written in 2013 using Django and MySQL and deployed on DigitalOcean. It had been partially re-written to use AWS Lambda and DynamoDB to save cost.

Possible area of improvement

  • Regex to check for various patterns can be combined
  • Unit test that mocks dynamodb response
