Module for the Hunspell spellchecker engine

Project description


Pyhunspell is a set of Python bindings for the Hunspell spellchecker engine. It lets developers load Hunspell dictionaries, check words, get suggestions, add new words, etc. It also provides some basic morphological analysis related methods. Basic usage instructions are at UsingPyHunspell.


Make sure that python-dev and libhunspell-dev are installed and run the following command as root to install pyhunspell:

> python install


It’s not entirely clear under which license PyHunspell is released. On the homepage it says LGPL, but in the source it says GPL. Since I believe the source has precedence, I will release this under GPL until the original tells me to do otherwise. For the full license, see COPYING.
