Project Description

synonym: instant synonym answers via command line. 🖖

synonym is nice because it allows you stay in the console. If you love editing articles, essays and blogs using a console-based text editor, and from time to time find yourself searching synonyms for verbs and adjectives, then it is for you.


  • If the word was mispelled, synonym would give a guess.
  • Limiting to a specific property (n., v., adj., adv.) is possible.
  • synonym uses cache by default for faster access. Caching can be disabled by setting SYNONYM_DISABLE_CACHE environment variable. The cache is in ~/.cache/howdoi.
  • Powered by:
  • Beautiful terminal colors thanks to crayons.
  • Inspired by howdoi
