dicius is a free online language dicionaries and Pycabulary offer a confortable interface to it. Actually Pycabulary is, at the moment, three different interfaces for the same service, a command line interface, GTK one and a Tkinter one, chooce what the best is for you. Notice that Tkinter is part of the standard Python library and is fully portable to every platform Python is supported (MasOs, Windows and Unix).

At the moment only english/italian and italian/english vocabularies are implemented.

Developer comments

I did not tried it on Windows but at least a double click on the executable should be enough to run the Tkinter version. Also the .egg file should be executable, or eggsecutable, try a double click on it.


For the docs look in the docs/ directory. To build the man page install docutils and rst2man and type from the console:

rst2man pycabulary.txt pycabulary.1
