JavaScript, Typo.js

A practical application of Typo.js

I released Typo.js about two years ago as a pure JavaScript implementation of the Hunspell spellchecker. I’ve been using it in Comment Snob for Chrome, but I haven’t seen many other projects using it. (JavaScript spellchecking is a very narrow niche, to be fair.)

A few days ago, however, I was made aware of a new project using Typo.js: NoTex. It’s a browser-based reStructuredText editor.

The author, Hasan Karahan, has used Typo.js to support 87 (!) different dictionaries. I’m happy to report that spellchecking in the app is smooth and indistinguishable from the native browser spellchecker.

You can follow NoTex’s development on GitHub.
