Project description

Installation

  1. Open Plover
  2. Navigate to the Plugin Manager tool
  3. Select the “plover-yaml-dictionary” plugin entry in the list
  4. Click install
  5. Restart Plover

The same method can be used for updating and uninstalling the plugin.

Dictionary Format

The YAML dictionary format used by this plugin maps translations to strokes rather than strokes to translations which differs from the default JSON dictionary format used by Plover. For a basic comparison,

JSON:

{
"PHRO*EFR": "Plover",
"PHRO*FR": "plover",
"PHROFR": "Plover",
}

YAML:

Plover:
- PHRO*EFR
- PHROFR
plover:
- PHRO*FR

Comments manually added within the YAML dictionary file are currently not preserved due to performance limitations of the YAML package being used.

Converting JSON dictionaries to YAML

You can use the following script to take an input JSON dictionary file path and output YAML dictionary file path to convert existing Plover JSON dictionaries to the YAML format used by this plugin.

import json

import ruamel.yaml


JSON_FILENAME = r''
YAML_FILENAME = r''

# Load JSON dictionary
with open(JSON_FILENAME, 'r', encoding='utf-8') as in_file:
    in_data = json.load(in_file)

# Group dictionary by value, sorted alphabetically
out_data = {}

for key, value in sorted(in_data.items(), key=lambda x: x[1].casefold()):
    out_data.setdefault(value, []).append(key)
    out_data[value] = sorted(out_data[value])

# Write dictionary to YAML
with open(YAML_FILENAME, 'w', encoding='utf-8') as out_file:
    yaml = ruamel.yaml.YAML(typ='safe')
    yaml.allow_unicode = True
    yaml.default_flow_style = False
    yaml.indent(sequence=4, offset=2)
    yaml.dump(out_data, out_file)
