Spell-check in wiki and ticket descriptions

Reported by: whitelynx Owned by: anybody
Priority: normal Component: Request-a-Hack
Severity: major Keywords: Spell-check
Cc: mmass@… Trac Release: 0.10

Description

It would be quite useful to have some sort of spell-check built into Trac so that people don't submit unreadable tickets.

There are many browser based Spell checkers. E.g. the Google Toolbar has one - that does the job it for me.

Saying there are other ways of doing it does't mean this is a bad idea. I personally don't like the google toolbar, and as such don't use it.

  • Cc mmass@… added
  • Trac Release set to 0.8

I'll vote for this -- would be very helpful with some of the guys we have here :)

Firefox 2.0 has a built in spell checker, as does Opera...

comment:7 Changed 8 years ago by arabus@…

Me too.

Something that works in the wiki to and is international.

Like an external programm that is called on every previw and marks the wrong words somehow (Background or the word like wiggle line..) would be really nice.

Even better if i got a WYSISYMG Editor (with wiki syntax formatting built in... :) ) that can do this while typing.

I do type fast but with many errors... :(

And i dont like GoogleBar and didn't use Firefox 2 at the moment...

The WBOSS can be intergated with any web page by using small portion of javascript.

This Spell Checker works well with MediaWiki: http://collaborate.extension.org/wiki/WikiSpeller#Installation. Can this work with TracWiki?

-1, just use the spell checker of your browser or an other installable external spell checker.
This doesn't really has to be a server side Trac plugin.

comment:14 Changed 5 years ago by anonymous

I have Firefox and it has a spell checker, but that spell checker does not work in trac. I would really like it to.

The only advantage I see to this is the possibility to add to the dictionary servers side so that it is customized for all users in the Trac environment. Otherwise, I see this as being satisfied by modern browsers.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

-1 Modern browsers all support inline spell check in pretty much all trac fields now. If the serverside dictionary is important, I am sure that one could be made available in a format interoperable with (at least 1) modern browsers.

As there have been no up-votes added to this in over a year, I am going to close it on the assumption that no one actually wants this anymore.

Feel free to reopen

Replying to anonymous:

Why does that matter? The spellchecker is contained in the browser.
