dictionary-en-us

English (United States) 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-us

Use

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