CyHunspell 1.1.0

A wrapper on hunspell for use in Python

Latest Version: 1.1.3

Cython wrapper on Hunspell Dictionary


This repository provides a wrapper on Hunspell to be used natively in Python. The module uses cython to link between the C++ and Python code, with some additional features. The hunspell library will cache any corrections, you can use persistent caching by adding the use_disk_cache argument to a Hunspell constructor, otherwise it uses in-memory caching.

NOTE: This repository only works on Unix environments until pthreads can be replicated with an mthread implementaiton.


cacheman – for persistent caching
