Description Sjur Nørstebø Moshagen 2017-11-15 13:05:56 CET
See the URL provided. There is (and has been for a time) an API to access and display web-based content directly within MS Office.

We should build a dictionary lookup tool that covers all our dictionaries (including satni.org) and make the lookup available directly in Office.

Tino Didriksen has plans to do something similar for spellers, especially targetting the platforms with no direct speller support from MS (iPads, Macs).

We can even extend this to provide other web-based services.

This relies on us getting the REST API done.

Note that this API requires data in XML/HTML, not json.
