A tiny command-line dictionary that scrapes

Project description

# Dict-tiny

Dict-tiny is a tiny command-line utility to look up English words or Chinese words from Just for fun :)

You can use `dict-tiny` in this way:

### Translate an English word or Chinese word

$ dict-tiny book
book 英[bʊk]美[bʊk]
n. 书籍;卷;账簿;名册;工作簿
vt. 预订;登记
n. (Book)人名;(中)卜(广东话·威妥玛);(朝)北;(英)布

$ dict-tiny 书
书 [shū]

### Translate the word in clipboard

Use `-c`/`--clipboard` to translate the word in clipboard:

$ dict-tiny -c
command line

* `-c`/`--clipboard` has high priority. If you add `-c` and a word at the same time, the word will be considered invalid.

### Get more detail translation about the word

Use `-m`/`--more` to get more detail translation:

$ dict-tiny 曾经 -m
曾经 [céng jīng]

more detail:
======== 副词 ========
(表示有过某些行为或情况) once:

$ dict-tiny html -m
html [,eitʃ ti: em 'el]
abbr. 超文本标记语言(Hypertext Markup Language)

more detail:
======== abbr. ========

* You can use `-c` and `-m` at the same time, which means get more detail translation about the word in clipboard.
* Some words have a lot of translation that may occupy the entire screen.
