    dictionary-en

    English spelling dictionary in UTF-8.

    Useful with hunspell, nodehun, nspell, Open Office, LibreOffice, Firefox and Thunderbird, or macOS.

    Generated by dictionaries from wordlist.aspell.net.

    Install

    npm:

    npm install dictionary-en

    Use

    var en = require('dictionary-en')
    
    en(function (err, result) {
      console.log(err || result)
    })

    Yields:

    {dic: <Buffer>, aff: <Buffer>}

    Where dic is a Buffer for the dictionary file at index.dic (in UTF-8) and aff is a Buffer for the affix file at index.aff (in UTF-8).

    Or directly load the files, using something like:

    var path = require('path')
    var base = require.resolve('dictionary-en')
    
    fs.readFileSync(path.join(base, 'index.dic'), 'utf-8')
    fs.readFileSync(path.join(base, 'index.aff'), 'utf-8')
