PyEnchant

Introduction

PyEnchant is a spellchecking library for Python, based on the excellent Enchant library.

PyEnchant combines all the functionality of the underlying Enchant library with the flexibility of Python and a nice “Pythonic” object-oriented interface. It also aims to provide some higher-level functionality than is available in the C API.

To get started, check out the comprehensive tutorial or the auto-generated API listing. If you just want to get up and running in a hurry, here’s a quick sample of PyEnchant in action:

>>> import enchant
>>> d = enchant.Dict("en_US")
>>> d.check("Hello")
True
>>> d.check("Helo")
False
>>> d.suggest("Helo")
['He lo', 'He-lo', 'Hello', 'Helot', 'Help', 'Halo', 'Hell', 'Held', 'Helm', 'Hero', "He'll"]
>>>
