Tagaini Jisho

I haven’t been using Tagaini Jisho for long, but so far I’m impressed. Tagaini Jisho is a kanji dictionary and study tool. Here’s what the author has to say about it:

Tagaini Jisho is a free, open-source Japanese dictionary and kanji lookup tool that is available for Windows, MacOS X and Linux and aims at becoming your Japanese study assistant. It allows you to quickly search for entries and mark those that you wish to study, along with tags and personal notes. It also let you train entries you are studying and follows your progression in remembering them. Finally, it makes it easy to review entries you did not remember by listing them on screen or printing them on a small booklet.

Tagaini Jisho also features complete stroke order animations for more than 6000 kanji.

You can find the author’s website at http://www.tagaini.net/.

I have pushed version 1.0.2 to the tree. Note that there is a version of sqlite which is bundled with the source tarball. I tried to unbundle it but it wasn’t trivial (to me, at least), so I left it there for the time being. If you figure out how to properly unbundle sqlite, feel free to commit the changes yourself. As usual with my packages, don’t waste time asking if you can do it, just do it.

    Sweet, thanks!

    I was looking for some time to replace GJiten, which is currently unmaintained, and still depends on Gnome 2 stuffs I wanted to get rid of… I’m currently trying gWaei, but Tagaini Jisho seemed more advanced, and I wanted to try it too. ‘Glad it was added to the tree if I decide to use it on the longer term :)
