aDict dictionary format handling

Project description

aDict provides interface to reading and writing aDict dictionary format. Typical usage:

from adict import *                # data classes
from adict.parser import Parser    # text to data
from adict.printer import Printer  # data to text

with open('some file') as f:
    a = Article('Python')
    a.classes.append('n')
    a.transcriptions.append('ˈpaɪθən')
    d1 = Definition('a kind of programming language')
    d2 = Definition('a kind of Snake')
    d2.links.append('hyperonym', 'Snake')
    a.content = [d1, d2]

    dictionary = Parser(f).parse()
    # Parser may parse strings too!
    dictionary.articles.append(a)

with open('some other file', 'w') as f:
    f.write(str(Printer(dictionary)))

aDict format specification

…in English has not written yet. :)

However, I think, this format is pretty simple to understand by trial and error or by looking on this implementation.
