I found myself playing with the Japanese WordNet database the other day and thought it would be nice to be able to use it from a ruby program. ActiveRecord made this pretty easy.
So in the spirit of Release Early, Release Often: https://github.com/mullr/WordnetJapanActiveRecord
I made this for some people at work, but maybe the rest of the world will find it useful as well.
I made a little program to make it easy to, given a word you want to learn, find example sentences for it on twitter. It barely works, but it’s already useful. I really like the flashcards I’ve made from twitter, they have a nice… flavor?
And if you want the source: http://github.com/mullr/TwitConc
If it’s broken for you, let me know how and I’ll try to fix it. I’ve tested on my mac only.
