Yomichan Import allows users of the Yomichan extension to import custom dictionary files. It currently supports the following formats:
Yomichan Import is being expanded to support other EPWING dictionaries based on user demand. This is a mostly non-technical (although laborious) process that requires writing regular expressions and creating font tables; volunteer contributions are welcome.
Builds of Yomichan Import are available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. As I do not have an easy way to compile for Mac OS X, the corresponding build is currently out of date. If you are able to, use the Linux or Windows versions as they will always be built from the latest version of the code.
Follow the steps outlined below to import your custom dictionary into Yomichan:

yomichanfrom the command line).
Notice: When converting EPWING dictionaries on Windows, it is important that the dictionary path you provide does not contain non-ASCII characters (including Japanese characters). This problem is due to the fact that the EPWING library used does not support such paths. Attempts to convert dictionaries stored in paths containing illegal characters may cause the conversion process to fail.
