I do have a proof-of-concept stardict compatible dictionary app that is absurdly fast on today's hardware that I want to finish.
I did start with minimalistics stardict parser and lookup library then wrote a simple gfxprim application on the top of that.
Goal for this Hackweek
I'm currently working on better text markup parsing and paragraph justification for the widget that shows the translation and description.
The gpdict application can now only search the first dictionary it finds, that has to be fixed and I'm also thinking of adding functionality that would allow user to download dictionaries from a pre-defined locations.
The last step will be packaging the application in buildservice at https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/home:metan
This project is one of its kind!
