git clone 'git://github.com/cute-jumper/bing-dict.el.git'
A minimalists' Emacs extension to search http://www.bing.com/dict. Support English to Chinese and Chinese to English.
You can install via melpa.
If installing this package manually:
(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/bing-dict.el") (require 'bing-dict)
You can call
bing-dict-brief to get the explanations of you query. The results
will be shown in the echo area.
Here is the screenshot:
You should probably give this command a key binding:
(global-set-key (kbd "C-c d") 'bing-dict-brief)
This extension aims for a quick search for a word. I don't plan to parse all the sections of the search results. If you want to view the complete results of your query word, I suggest using external browser to do this. The following code could partly achieve the goal:
(browse-url (concat "http://www.bing.com/dict/search?q=" (url-hexify-string (read-string "Query: "))))
