hunspell 0.2

Module for the Hunspell spellchecker engine

Latest Version: 0.3.3


Pyhunspell is a set of Python bindings for the Hunspell spellchecker engine. It lets developers load Hunspell dictionaries, check words, get suggestions, add new words, etc. It also provides some basic morphological analysis related methods. Basic usage instructions are at UsingPyHunspell.


This is not the original repository for PyHunspell. I simply uploaded here to fix the script to work with newer version of hunspell, as the original source does not appear to be updated anymore. The original project is hosted on Google Code:

It’s not my intention to actively maintain this project, beyond making sure that it compiles with recent versions of Hunspell, for use in QuiEdit (a distraction- free text editor).


Make sure that python-dev and libhunspell-dev are installed and run the following command as root to install pyhunspell:

> python install


It’s not entirely clear under which license PyHunspell is released. On the homepage it says LGPL, but in the source it says GPL. Since I believe the source has precedence, I will release this under GPL until the original tells me to do otherwise. For the full license, see COPYING.
