    -o, --output <file>  output file - defaults to stdout
    -s, --sort           sort the list of words

    -T, --no-transform   Do not apply the prefix and suffix transforms.  Root words only.

Converting Hunspell to word list

To convert a Hunspell dictionary to a word list, you will need both the .dic and .aff files. For example en_US comes with two files: en_US.dic and en_US.aff. This tool assumes they are both in the same directory.

Assuming these files are in the current directory, the following command will write the words to en_US.txt.

hunspell-reader words ./en_US.dic -o en_US.txt

Library Functions

Installation

install -S hunspell-reader rxjs

Note: the reader uses rxjs 5.0.

Usage

Typescript / Javascript:

import { HunspellReader } from 'hunspell-reader';

const baseFile = 'en_US';
const dicFile = baseFile + '.dic';
const affFile = baseFile + '.aff';

// Initialize the reader with the Hunspell files
const reader = new HunspellReader(affFile, dicFile);

// Get the words as an array
const promiseArrayOfWords = reader.readWords().toArray().toPromise();
