About the API


Thanks a lot for this amazing tool!

I'm wondering if there is any plan on publishing more APIs, like searching sentence and getting analysis back. It would be really useful.

Also, any chance that people can contribute to building the API?

Analysis of a sentence could be done with Mecab, I don't know really what level of complexity you're looking for but I played with that library and its Ruby bindings a bit and you could separate words and know the syntaxis and role of every one of them (noun, particle, verb, etc). With that info you could search the word definition in Jisho API or JMDict or other sources.

It could be great to contribute to Jisho in a way or another so if there's a chance to help I'll be glad too.
