dict.cc CLI Client

Tag: Haskell CLI

While learning German, I found that frequently looking up translations on dict.cc was slow - open the browser, type in the URL, wait for it to load, type in the search, etc. Being able to do this in the terminal sped things up. I also wanted to improve my knowledge of Haskell and this was a good first project.

Here’s an example of using the tool:

$ dict-cc dictionary
