Kaltxì!

I have completely rewritten the program to be able to natively port it to all platforms. Much of the program is the same, except from a major design difference. This new version also display which prefixes, adpositions and infixes it find in the word.

My plan was to release a pretty much final version yesterday, but seeing how poor performance is at older computers, I decided to delay it a bit further. Hopefully RC2 will be available in the end of this weekend.
Stay tuned!

Features:
  • Simple detection of prefixes, ad-positions, suffixes and infixes.
  • Compensates for special chars (ä, ì).
  • Automatic updating of wordlist. (Based on CSV files SQL exports from EanaEltu (Creds to Tuiq and Taronyu!))
  • Multi platform

Screenshot:


Current version: RC2

New features:
  • Automatic updating!
  • Resizeable window.
  • Always on top.

Fixes/Improvements/Changes:
  • Better searching
  • Matching of suffixes.
  • Highlights unconfirmed words with red.

Windows
Linux (Requires Qt libraries)
Mac OS X



This application now have over 100 uniqe users!

Please tell me if you find any bugs!

I'm not sure. IT will be written in .NET since that's the only client side language that I'm good at. But I will probably take a look at Mono.NET, hopefully it isn't too hard to make it work in linux too.

I was going to suggest Java, but I've had bad experiences in the past with making GUIs for Java apps.  Wine would probably be a good route to look into though...

I haven't had any success with Wine and .NET applications (the D&D character builder, et al), so I'm a bit wary of using it.  I'd do some more research though.  It'd be a nice thing to have.

Using Mono would be pretty easy for this, *if* you stay away from WPF or the Windows forms libraries and go for a cross-platform GUI e.g. Gtk#/Glade.

Got it already, though the database needs to be completed.
Already discussed this with Seabass, turned off, because most users don't like to open .exe files. It took me about 10 days to complete whole script.

(Full version, also got one without option to add words)

Code used: Visual Basic.NET 2008
Should give you an idea about how to do it? I hope it'll help you.

Yeah I'm in for a Mac version as well! Unfortunately .Net (using Mono) kinda sucks on Mac...

I'm not familiar with Mac scripting. Just the Windows part. Source code might be available if you really need it. (And if it could help you, if you want to translate it to Mac?)

I think it's quite impossible to port .NET to Mac unless they have a similar API.

Well if you are lucky you can compile it using mono and it will just run.

I'm not familiar with Mac scripting. Just the Windows part. Source code might be available if you really need it. (And if it could help you, if you want to translate it to Mac?)

Unfortunately I haven't worked with Objective C and the Cocoa frameworks either, but I might play around a bit when I find the time.

If by similar API you mean the entire* .NET runtime written to run on OSX then here you go http://www.mono-project.com/Mono:OSX

It is quite possible. Although I've heard a few complaints about the Mac version. I use Mono .NET on Windows and Linux all the time though - works great.

* Well... not the entire thing. There's some classes missing but all the important stuff is there.
