Drawsomething word guess helper.

Project Description

Help you guess drawsomething words by brute force all permutations.


  • pyenchant
  • google-translate

Install Guide

Take OS X for example.

Drawsomething depends on enchant to do spell checking.

As pyenchant is only a python binding for enchant, we need to install enchant first. And we also need to install aspell with en dict because enchant use aspell as backend.

$ brew install aspell --lang=en
$ brew install enchant
$ pip install pyenchant google-translate


One line script to generate all possible words:

>>> import drawsomething
>>> drawsomething.get_words('esttxyz', 4)
['ttys', 'sexy', 'yest', 'text', 'sett', 'zest', 'stet', 'test']

To list words with translations:

>>> import drawsomething
>>> words = drawsomething.get_words('esttxyz', 4)
>>> for w in words:
>>>     trans = drawsomething.translate(w, 'zh_cn').lower()
>>>     print w, trans

The drawsth is a cli script to list all possible words:

$ drawsth -l 4 -c esttxyz
