JMDict

golang japanese mit license

JMDict is a simple library written in Go for parsing the raw data files for the JMDict (vocabulary) JMnedict (names), and KANJIDIC (Kanji) dictionaries. As far as I know, these are the only publicly available Japanese dictionaries and are therefore used by a variety of tools (including Yomichan-Import from this site).

The XML format used to store dictionary entries and entity data was deceptively annoying to work with, leading to the creation of this library. Please see the documentation page for a technical overview of how to use this library.
