Jisho Text Parsing also Open Source?

Hi @Kimtaro and friends,

If you search a sentence or phrase, Jisho.org will parse it and identify parts of it. For example, search for 私はアニメが好きです。and you will see a text breakdown. Is this an outside open resource that Jisho.org uses or is it an in-house or self-made parser and display? If it is open source, could you please let me know what it is? If it is not open source, have you considered making it open source on GitHub?

Thank you

P.S. I know of Tiny Segmenter but perhaps there is something better.

I think I found it conveniently listed on the About page:

"Jisho.org uses MeCab to parse Japanese. In order to make it easier to use Kim has developed a Ruby wrapper library called Ve."
