English language dictionary. Check word membership and lookup definitions. To keep the download size of the package smaller, this elm package is backed by a serverless API.


To get the full functionality, deploy the API to your AWS account:

  • clone this repo
  • npm install
  • npm run build
  • npm run deploy

Take note of the API endpoint, which will look something like https://***

You can also just run the API locally by doing npm start, in which case your endpoint becomes http://localhost:7631.

Configure the EnglishDictionary to use the serverless API by setting the endpoint:

type alias Model =
    { engDictConfig : EnglishDictionary.Config
    , otherStuff : String

reset : Model
reset =
        (EnglishDictionary.Config "http://localhost:7631")
